Automation and Optimisation of Brushless Permanent Magnet Motors

Design, Automation, Simulation and Optimisation
GEC Marconi / BAE Systems

The project adopts a new system for automatic design and optimisation of PM motors with the aid of a commercial finite-element package. The main novelty of the approach is in the usage of an interpolation technique to accommodate the time stepping. This reduces the number of finite-element solutions required and thus offers considerable savings in computing times. The system has already proven its usefulness, with considerable accuracy, for design purposes and optimisation.
