Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

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.
