    Abstract

    This paper derives an effective shape of the flux barrier in an interior permanent magnet (IPM) motor. IPM motors generally have many design parameters such as the current phase angle, shape of the rotor and stator's iron core, and shape and position of the magnet. The flux barrier plays an important role in controlling torque characteristics. We apply topology optimization (TO) to the rotor core using a multistep genetic algorithm to determine an effective flux barrier. Furthermore, we extend the TO to combinatorial optimization for considering its effect on the current phase angle. Thus, a reasonable flux barrier with an optimal phase angle is determined.
