Abstract

We propose an optimization approach based on the estimation of permeability distribution, which enables us to make an effective objective function of optimization methods for the efficient design of magnetic devices. By the proposed approach, we can improve magnetic device characteristics by evaluating the deviation in the permeability distribution of the device as an objective function. In this approach, we separate the iron areas and calculate the permeability of each block to consider the permeability distribution. To verify the proposed approach, some numerical results, i.e., the shape optimization of ventilation holes in an induction motor, which demonstrate the validity of the proposed approach, are also presented. The optimization concept based on the estimation of permeability distribution is effective and can be readily applied to the practical design optimization of various magnetic devices.
