Abstract

The design of multi‐domain that considers all components of electromagnetic systems such as air, iron, magnet, and coil is investigated using topology optimization, interpolation method, and FEM. The design sensitivity equation for topology optimization is derived using the adjoint variable method and the continuum approach. The proposed method is applied to topology optimization of C‐core actuator and shows significant improvement.

Abstract

This paper presents a probabilistic optimal design for electromagnetic systems. A 2D magnetostatic finite element model is constructed for a reliability‐based topology optimization (RBTO). Permeability, coercive force, and applied current density are considered as uncertain variables. The uncertain variable means that the variable has a variance on a certain design point. In order to compute reliability constraints, a performance measure approach is widely used. To find reliability index easily, the limit‐state function is linearly approximated at each iteration. This approximation method is called the first‐order reliability method, which is widely used in reliability‐based design optimizations. To show the effectiveness of the proposed method, RBTO for the electromagnetic systems is applied to magnetostatic problems.

Abstract

Discusses the 27 papers in ISEF 1999 Proceedings on the subject of electromagnetisms. States the groups of papers cover such subjects within the discipline as: induction machines; reluctance motors; PM motors; transformers and reactors; and special problems and applications. Debates all of these in great detail and itemizes each with greater in‐depth discussion of the various technical applications and areas. Concludes that the recommendations made should be adhered to.
