The Concepts of Sizing and Optimization Model: applied to the Optimal Design of a Permanent Magnet Generator

Carlson, Renato
Wurtz, Frederic
This paper is a methodological contribution in order to characterize two kinds of models that should be used in a complete optimization process of energy conversion systems like motors or actuators. We will indeed introduce the concept of "sizing model", and the concept of "optimization model". We will show also how to use them in a design process in order to produce optimal result that we concatenate in "an optimal design graph". All those methodological results will be illustrated on the optimal design of a Permanent Magnet Generator (PMG).


Calculation of parameters of single-phase PM motor for design optimization
Ertan, Hulusi Bülent; Capolino, GA (2005-09-01)
This paper presents methods of calculation of parameters of single-phase permanent-magnet (SPPM) motor, in terms of motor dimensions and material properties, which are utilized in the dynamic model of the motor. The intention of the study is to develop means of SPPM performance calculations, which lend themselves to be employed within a mathematical design optimization approach. The calculated parameters are compared with measured values and are shown to be accurate for the purpose of the study.
On the proximity effects of high-energy magnets on M-19 magnetic steel core
Jayasankar, Seethal; Maharjan, Lizon; Cosoroaba, Eva; Bostancı, Emine; Fahimi, Babak (2017-08-03)
Permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM) and asynchronous induction motors (IM) are widely used in the industry for a diverse set of applications. Although the use of induction motors is increasing for industrial applications due to cost inconsistency in rare earth magnets, PMSM motors are still being used because of their compact size, high power density, and greater efficiency. In interior permanent magnet synchronous motor (IPMSM) and surface mounted permanent magnet synchronous motor (SPMSM), the non-...
A comprehensive approach for the instability of PbTe quantum dots and design of a combinatorial passivation strategy
Hacıefendioğlu, Tuğba; Solmaz, Taha K.; Erkan, Merve; Asil Alptekin, Demet (Elsevier BV, 2020-04-01)
Limited air stability circumvents the outstanding properties of the PbTe quantum dots (QDs) and hinders its utilization in the field of optoelectronics. In this respect, we present a detailed understanding on the instability of the PbTe QDs and develop a combinatorial passivation protocol based on engineering the QD surface during the growth phase and solid state ligand exchange process. The dual passivation approach yields thin films and solar cells with outstanding stabilities under ambient conditions. Pr...
Inertial parameter design of spatial mechanisms
Can, Fatih Cemal; Soylu, Reşit; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2003)
In this thesis, the inertial parameters of a spatial mechanism are used in order to optimize various aspects of the dynamic behaviour of the mechanism (such as minimizing actuator torque/ force fluctuations, shaking force/moment balancing, etc.) while the effects of loads are considered as well. Here, inertial parameters refer to the mass, 6 elements of the inertia tensor and coordinates of the center of mass of the links. The concept of Force Fluctuation Number (FFN) is utilized to optimize the dynamic beh...

For the first time theoretical (in terms of the classical theory of ordering) and experimental (with the adiabatic calorimeter method) investigations are made of the effect of a third component impurity C on the heat capacity of A3B‐type ordered alloys with FCC structure. The effect of the impurities Mn, Cr, Mo, or W on the heat capacity of Ni3Fe alloys is analysed as an example. The comparison of the theoretical results with the experimental data shows good qualitative agreement.
