Abstract

In this paper the authors present an optimal genetic algorithm (GA) based design of a prototype permanent magnet disc motor using two different objective functions. The objective functions applied in this investigation are the efficiency and the electromagnetic torque of the motor. The optimal design of the prototype is based on previous quasi3D FEM magnetic field calculation and analysis. Comparative values of the optimised motor parameters using the two objective functions are presented, as well as the results of the quasi 3D FEM magnetic field calculation for both optimised models and the prototype.
