This paper aims to discuss the optimum design of a Maglev lift system's electromagnet to reduce the weight of the machine with constraint of normal force using response surface methodology (RSM).
The optimum design of Maglev lift system's electromagnet for weight reduction is performed by using RSM. The magnetostatic analysis of Maglev lift system's electromagnet is performed by using ANSYS.
The process is based on minimization of an appropriate objective function, while at each step the response is determined by the 3D finite element method (FEM).
It is necessary to compare normal force between the 3D FEM result and the experimental result of the manufactured model.
The paper deals with the possibility of using the RSM for optimization of an electromagnet with a higher number of the design variables.
