Optimum Design of Electromagnets for Magnetic Levitation of Transport Systems based on the Inverse Problem Solutions

Yuriy Bakhvalov, Valeriy Grechikhin, and Anna Yufanova

Abstract: Article is devoted to design of optimum electromagnets for magnetic levitation of transport systems. The method of electromagnets design based on the inverse problem solution of electrical equipment is offered. The method differs from known by introducing a stage of minimization the target functions providing the stated levitation force and magnetic induction in a gap, and also the mass of an electromagnet. Initial values of parameters are received, using approximate formulas of the theory of electric devices and electrical equipment. The example of realization of a method is given. The received results show its high efficiency at design. It is practical to use the offered method and the computer program realizing it as a part of system of the automated design of electric equipment for transport with a magnetic levitation.

Keywords: optimization, inverse problems, finite elements method, electromagnet, magnetic field, design automatization
