Feasible and Optimal Designs of Variable Air Gap Torque Motors
The problems of automating the feasible and optimal designs of variable air gap torque motors are studied. Both are formulated as constrained optimization problems, where equality and inequality constraints are associated with the geometrical and physical characteristics of the device. Numerical results show that feasible designs can be obtained for specified rated torque outputs, and optimal designs can be achieved by reducing the volume or power consumption substantially from the initial designs, without reducing the rated torque output.
