This study derives a high performance flux barrier for an interior permanent magnet (IPM) motor using binary-based topology optimization (TO). TO has a higher degree of optimization than size or shape optimization. An IPM motor has many design parameters including the current phase angle, core shape of rotor and stator, and magnet position and shape. The flux barrier in an IPM motor plays a particularly important role, influencing several characteristics. We apply TO, using a multistep genetic algorithm, to the rotor core in order to determine a flux barrier with the highest torque performance.
