Automated Optimal Design of a Small Dc Motor with Global Evolution Strategy and FEM-Model
The design process of electromagnetic devices reflects an optimisation procedure. The construction and step by step optimisation of technical system in practice is a trial and error -process. In order to get an automated optimal design, numerical optimisation is necessary to achieve a well defined optimum. The application of automated optimal design of a non-linear magneto-static problem will be demonstrated in the paper. The characteristic features and behaviour of the numerical methods used are shown by minimising the overall material expenditure of a small dc-motor by optimising the rotor and stator shape.
