2 L. Ovacı Sigma 4/. INTRODUCTION Th thory of th finit lmnt mthod (FEM) for calculating flux distribution in lctromagntic dvics has bn wll stablishd. Finding a vctor otntial solution for a givn gomtry, matrial rortis, xcitation sourcs, and so on is calld a forward roblm. Du to th comtitiv world mart, dsignrs attmt to rduc cost, wight, and/or to imrov fficincy and rliability of lctromagntic dvics. Thrfor, th dsignr is mor intrstd in finding th gomtry of a crtain ortion of a dvic, such as iron arts, sizs and locations/ositions of xcitation coils to satisfy a givn fild, torqu or forc attrn, rathr than finding how magntic flux is distributd insid th dvic. Sinc this rquirs baccalculation of dvicdscritiv dsign aramtrs, ths tys of dsign otimization roblms ar classifid as invrs roblms. Although th thory of mathmatical rogramming has bn widly dvlod sinc th 95 s, th initial rsarch on otimal dsign roblms mrgd from th ara of structural mchanics in th arly 97 s. During th last yars, th otimal dsign tchniqus combining otimization mthods with solution of govrning artial diffrntial quations (PDE) hav bn xtnsivly studid. Th rsults can b found in th txtboos, for xaml, Gallaghr and Ziniwicz [], Haug and Arora [], Kirch [3], Pironnau [4], Vandrlaats [5], and Haslingr and Nittaanmai [6]. In lctromagntics, thr hav rcntly bn divrs alications of dsign otimization roblms aaring in th litratur [7][46]. Som alications ar concrnd with otimizing dvic outut forcs (Gitosusastro t al. [9], and Saldanha t al. [], []) whil othrs ar concrnd with minimizing ddy currnt losss in conductiv arts of dvics (Kasr []), or minimizing roduction cost (Arino t al. [3], Albaum t al. [4], [5]). Many of th alications dal with otimizing fild attrns whr an objctiv function in th form of th squard sum of th diffrncs btwn calculatd and dsird valus of fild quantitis at slctd oints is minimizd. Th rsults hav aard in th rcnt ars (Simin and Trowbridg [6], Wbr [7], Wbr and Hool [8], [9], Koh t al. [], Par t al. [], [], Subramaniam t al. [3], and Vasconclos t al. [4]). In this ty of roblms, th objctiv function is xctd to achiv a minimum at zro in th absnc of constraint quations. Howvr, in th rsnc of constraint quations, th otimum is not at zro, but th bst ossibl solution aroaching th dsird critrion is found. In som roblms, a uniqu solution may not xist or thr may b no solution. Thr hav bn diffrnt fild analysis mthods usd in lctromagntic otimization. Initially, intgral mthods wr rformd for fild calculations whil gradints with rsct to dsign aramtrs wr dtrmind by th finit diffrnc mthod (FDM) (Gottvald [44], [45], [46], Simin and Trowbridg [6], and Par t al. []). Prhas, on of th arlist attmts using th finit lmnt mthod (FEM) in an otimization rocss wr rsntd by Salon and Istfan [7], and Istfan and Salon [8]. In thir wor, thy cast a snsitivity analysis basd on dirct diffrntiation of th finit lmnt matrics with rsct to nodal dislacmnts dscribing a dvic s gomtry. Wbr [7], Wbr and Hool. [8], [9], Koh t al. [], Par t al. [], and Hool [5] subsquntly usd this dirct diffrntiation schm for snsitivity analysis. Th boundary lmnt mthod (BEM), dvlod for analysis of on boundary roblms, has rcntly bn usd in snsitivity analysis (Koh t al. [], Par t al. [], Enoizono and Tsuchida [6], and Enoizono t al. [7]) Sinc th objctiv function is a highly nonlinar function of dsign aramtrs, a wid varity of nonlinar otimization stratgis hav bn invstigatd, and tstd on diffrnt roblms for thir sd, convrgnc and fficincy (Pris t al. [8], and Gottvald [44]). Ths otimization mthods ar classifid into two main catgoris: ) dtrministic mthods, and ) stochastic mthods. Th dtrministic mthods includ th firstordr mthods such as th ststdscnt, conjugat gradint and quasinwton mthods (s,.g., [5], [47] and [48]).
3 Otimal Dsign of Nonlinar Magntic Systms... Ths mthods ar basd on finding th otimum in th dcrasing gradint dirction, rquiring only th firstordr drivativs. Th firstordr drivativs ar calculatd by mans of snsitivity analysis incororating various fild solution tchniqus, such as th finit diffrnc, and th finit lmnt mthods. Stochastic mthods such as simulatd annaling (SA) [6], [49], and th mthods basd on volution stratgis [45], and gntic algorithms (GA) [49] ar zrothordr (drivativfr) mthods, rquiring valuation of th objctiv function at so many oints that, dnding on th roblm comlxity, thy may bcom comutationally xhaustiv. Howvr, a major advantag is that ths two mthods hav bn shown to b globally convrgnt (Gottvald [46]). Indndntly carrying out th fild analysis and otimization sts has som advantags and disadvantags. On advantag is that commrcially availabl fficint otimization acags sav tim for rogram dvlomnt, scially for rogram modification whn th otimization roblm is changd, (.g., whn th objctiv function is modifid or nw constraint quations ar addd to th roblm). Anothr advantag is that th rogram might hav mor flxibility in choosing anothr otimization algorithm whn on cannot rform as wll as th othr. On th othr hand, th alications in which mor sohisticatd drivativ calculations ar involvd rsult in xcssiv numbr of calls of fild analysis rograms, incrasing th comutational cost. A grat dal of dsign otimization tools dvlod so far convntionally us formal otimization tchniqus using th firstordr or gradint information to find an otimization dirction to rogrss th dsign towards th otimum solution. Th firstordr drivativs of th objctiv function as wll as th dsign constraints ar formulatd in a way that th fild otntial is considrd as a function of dsign variabls. In most roblms, this rlationshi is imlicit and th ncssary drivativs ar obtaind by mans of th dsign snsitivity analysis. Following th forward solution to th fild otntials outsid th otimization rocss, th drivativs of th fild otntials with rsct to th dsign aramtrs ar numrically calculatd by rturbing th fild quations. Whil th firstordr mthods ar comutationally affordabl and can b fficintly solvd for largsizd otimization roblms, xtnsion to th scondordr otimization mthods bcom cumbrsom, rquiring intnsiv comutational ffort with incrasing numbr of dsign aramtrs and constraint quations. Escially, if nonlinarity of matrial rortis is considrd for mor ralistic dsign roblms, this numrical rocdur bcoms vn mor comlicatd whn forming th larg matrics from th rturbd fild quations.. BASIC CONCEPT OF OPTIMAL DESIGN Th dsign otimization rocss rquirs basically two main moduls: a modul for fild solution which utilizs an analytical (sldom) or numrical aroximation (oftn) basd on diffrntial or intgral aroachs, such as finit diffrnc mthods, finit lmnt mthod, boundary lmnt mthod or hybrid mthods (BEMFEM); a modul which mloys otimization stratgis ranging from crud trial and rror stratgis to robust mathmatical rogramming tchniqus. Traditional comutraidd dsign (CAD) systms intgrat ths two moduls to sarch for an otimal solution basd on siml, trialandrror rincils (s, for xaml, Hool [5], Lowthr and Silvstr [5], and Binns t al. [5]). To find an otimal dsign, th otimization aramtrs ar modifid for ach ossibl trial dsign stat, and thn th fild analysis is rformd for th nw dsign. Thn, th objctiv function is valuatd and th constraint quations ar chcd if thy ar satisfid. This rocss is continud until a dsird rformanc is achivd. q This rocss is xctd to grow as n (whr n is th numbr of dsign variabls and q is th numbr of stats for ach dsign variabl). Considr a siml roblm to b otimizd with rsct to thr indndnt dsign variabls, and ach variabl has thr ossibl dsign 3
4 L. Ovacı Sigma 4/ stats. Also, suos that ach call of fild analysis rogram rquirs ontnth of a CPU scond on a comutr. Thus, th analysis rogram is calld 3 3 = 9 tims to valuat th objctiv function for all ossibl dsign stats rquiring a total of.9 CPU scond on th comutr. This would robably b considrd as an conomical and fficint solution. Howvr, most ractical dsign roblms tyically rquir as many as variabls and dsign stats for ach variabl. In this cas, a total of analysis calls ar mad to valuat th objctiv for all ossibl dsign stats. Suos a rlativly mor accurat fild analysis is rquird for ths roblms, and ach analysis call rquirs on scond. It will b xctd 3 yars of comutation on th sam comutr! Dsit th fact that ths ossibl trial dsign stats ar liminatd by an xrincd dsign nginr or an xrt systm using som nowldgbasd huristics, th rocss is comutationally xhaustiv and its us is still imractical for comlx nginring roblms. 3. AUTOMATED OPTIMAL DESIGN Figur. Automatd Dsign Procss In rcnt yars, traditional dsign rocdurs hav bn automatd using r and ostrocssing moduls coorating with commrcially availabl fild analysis and numrical otimization 4
5 Otimal Dsign of Nonlinar Magntic Systms... softwar. Th rincil of an automatd otimal dsign (AOD) systm is basd on a tight intgration of th moduls into an itrativ loo in which th unnown dsign aramtrs ar rogrssivly udatd to advanc th dsign towards th otimum solution. Th bloc diagram in Figur shows th rlations among th basic moduls during th itrativ loo is in rogrss. Starting with a givn initial gomtry, th rrocssor modul gnrats th initial msh data usd in th finit lmnt analysis modul. Aftr th fild otntial is accuratly solvd, th objctiv function is valuatd using th fild or othr quantitis comutd within th ostrocssing modul. If th dsird objctiv is not satisfid, th fild solution is assd to th otimization modul to rform a lin sarch rocdur to obtain an otimum oint along th gradint dirction comutd by th dsign snsitivity analysis. Onc th nw valus of th dsign variabls ar comutd, th msh coordinats ar udatd, and th nw quantitis ar comutd to chc if th dsird rformanc is achivd. If th nw rsult is not satisfactory, thn itrations ar carrid out until a satisfactory rsult is attaind. Whil traditional otimal dsign rocdurs rquir substantial amount of comutational tim and humancomutr intraction, AOD systms using numrical otimization tchniqus offr a logical stratgy to aroach th otimal solution in a systmatic way. Although th discilin of nonlinar rogramming is wll stablishd, alications to ral nginring systms ar quit nw and nginring ingnuity is rquird for adatation of ths tchniqus to a varity of dsign roblms. In th rmaindr of this ar, mthodologis for dvloing a comutr tool for dsign otimization of magntic systms will b discussd. 4. FINITE ELEMENT MODEL OF MAGNETOSTATIC FIELD 4.. Fild Equation Th gnral form of th govrning artial diffrntial quation of a magntostatic roblm is drivd from Maxwll's quations. Nglcting th high frquncy ffcts, considr r r (ν A ) = J, () whr dislacmnt currnts ar nglctd (i.., no nrgy is stord in lctric fild). This quation rrsnts th most gnral cas of magntostatic hnomnon which tas lac in mdiums with nonlinar magntic rluctivity charactristics. Sinc this study focuss strictly on twodimnsional cass, th currnt dnsity vctor, J r, osssss only th longitudinal (zdirctd) comonnt. Thus, Equation () is rducd to th scalar nonlinar Poisson's quation (ν A) = J, () whr A ( x, y) and J ( x, y) dnot th zdirctd comonnts of A r and J r rsctivly. 4.. Local Elmnt Matrics For numrical solution of Equation (), FEM can b furnishd basd on variational rincils by which th corrct otntial minimizs th nrgy functional [53]: B I( A) = Ω ν ( B ) d( B ) J A ds, (3) S ( ) whr Ω is th roblm domain in which otntial fild tas lac. 5

A triangular lmnt with thr vrtx coordinats First, th roblm rgion is discrtizd into twodimnsional triangular lmnts (s Figur ) and th otntial function insid ach lmnt is aroximatd by a linar olynomial A( x, y) = α + α x + α y, 3 (4) whr th α s ar th cofficints of this olynomial and dfind as α = ( a A + a A + a A ) 3 3 α = ( b A + b A + b A ) 3 3 (5) α = ( c A + c A + c A ), whr A, A and A ar th vctor otntials on th vrtics of th triangular lmnt, and is 3 th ara of this lmnt and is dfind by = a + a + a = b c b c. 3 (6) Th gomtrical cofficints, a s b s and c s, ar dfind as a = x y x y b = y y c = x x a = x y x y b = y y c = x x (7) a = x y x y b = y y c = x x, whr x s and y s ar th coordinats of th lmnt vrtics (s Figur ). Thus, th comonnts of th lmnt flux dnsity ar calculatd by A A B = α + α, whr B = = α ; B = = α 3 x 3 y y x (8) which imlis that th flux dnsity is constant throughout th lmnt. Th nrgy functional givn in Equation (3) can b writtn for a triangular lmnt B I ( A) = ( B ) d( B ) J A ds S ( ) ν.

Th ntris of th lmnt stiffnss matrix in Equation () can b writtn mor xlicitly as K = ν ( B ) P, (3) whr P is th lmnt gomtric cofficint matrix whos ntris ar calculatd by P = ( bb i j + c i c j ) ij (4) 4 and th ntris of th sourc vctor ar calculatd by F i = J, (5) 3 whr J dnots th lmnt currnt dnsity and is assumd constant throughout this lmnt Global Fild Equations Th total nrgy functional is calculatd by summing th individual contributions of NE lmnts insid th roblm rgion. Thus, th total nrgy insid th systm is xrssd by I NE B ( A) = ( B ) d( B ) J A dω, ν (6) Ω = whr Ω dnots th domain of th lmnt and B dnots th magnitud of th magntic flux dnsity insid this lmnt. Th functional in Equation (6) is a function of all vctor otntials at th nods of th triangular lmnts dfind. Finally, minimization of th nrgy functional with rsct to th nodal vctor otntials (i.., I ( A, A L A N ) / A for i =,, L, N ) rsults in i th wllnown nonlinar global fild quations of th finit lmnt mthod K N ( ), N A N A = N F N (7) whr K is th global stiffnss matrix, A includs th vctor otntials of N nods, and F is th sourc trm du to alid xcitation currnts to crat th magntic fild in th systm. Th global stiffnss matrix in Equation (7) is a function of th magntic vctor otntials bcaus of th nonlinar rluctivity charactristics of saturabl iron arts. 5. THE OPTIMAL DESIGN PROBLEM This sction is concrnd with rsnting th basic mathmatical sts in formulating th otimization algorithm roosd in [5]. First, th otimization roblm will b dscribd in a standard form. It will b shown how th objctiv function and th constraint quations ar normalizd to imrov th condition of th otimization roblm. Thn, th constraind roblm is transformd to an unconstraind roblm by forming th augmntd Lagrang function as dscribd in [5]. Th otimality conditions ar imosd to th augmntd Lagrang function to find a minimizr for th unconstraind otimization roblm. Th LagrangNwton quations ar obtaind by linarizing th nonlinar quations from th ncssary conditions. 7
8 L. Ovacı Sigma 4/ Th itrativ otimization rocdur dvlod in this sction altrs th gomtry of crtain dsird arts of th magntic systm until th calculatd flux dnsitis ar aroximatly matchd at slctd locations. Th dsird rformanc is obtaind by minimizing th objctiv function xrssd in th lastsquars sns l= [ ] B c ( A, d) B, l s, l M Φ( A, d) =, (8) whr B and s, l B dnot th scifid and calculatd magntic flux dnsitis at M tst oints, c, l d and A dnot th nodal dislacmnts, th unnown dflctions of slctd nods on th otimizd gomtry from th initial dvic gomtry, rsctivly. During th itrativ rocss, it is rquird that th fild quations b satisfid as th gomtry is altrd. By adding th fild quations givn in Equation (7) to th otimization roblm as nonlinar quality constraints, th objctiv function bcoms a function of both th gomtric aramtrs and th magntic vctor otntials. On th othr hand, th gomtric dsign aramtrs ar subjctd to som constraints in th roblm rgion (.g., th xcitation coils cannot b largr than som dimnsions, and th xcitation currnts ar limitd by som magnitud du to thrmal constraints). With ths assumtions, th otimization roblm is xrssd as minimization of an objctiv function subjct to a st of nonlinar constraint quations: l= [ ] B c ( A, d) B, l s, l M minimiz : Φ( A, d) = (9) subjct to : N K ( A, d) A F ( d) = for =, L, N n n () n= L U d d d for =, L, DF, () L U whr d and d ar lowr and ur bounds of th nodal dislacmnt vctor, d, assignd to som slctd nods on th dvic gomtry to b otimizd. 5.. Normalization Of Objctiv Function And Constraints Th objctiv and th constraint functions in Equations (9) and () ar of diffrnt dimnsions. Ths functions dirctly dnd on magnitud of xcitation sourcs (such as alid xcitation currnt dnsity in th fild windings) and th scal in which th hysical dvic dimnsions is dfind (in this study all dimnsions ar dfind in mtr). Th dimnsions of th objctiv function in Equation (9), th rsidual of global finit lmnt quations in Equation (), and th sid constraints in Equation () ar th squar of Tsla (Tsla is th dimnsion of magntic flux dnsity), Amr, and mtr, rsctivly. For xaml, if th alid fild currnt is doubld (ignoring th ffcts of saturation in iron matrials), th objctiv function quadruls and th rsidual of th finit lmnt fild quations doubls, whil th inquality constraints in Equation () will rmain th sam bcaus thy dirctly dnd on th scal of th dvic dimnsions dfind. This unbalanc among th diffrnt functions causs th following undsird ffcts: numrical difficultis in solving th constraind otimization roblm whn a constraint function or th objctiv function dominats th otimization rocss; dndnc of th objctiv function on hysical dvic aramtrs rvnts th usr from corrctly intrrting otimization rformanc comutd for diffrnt xcitation currnts. Objctiv Function. A ror normalization of th objctiv function and th constraint quations is thrfor ncssary to imrov th conditioning of th unconstraind minimization rocss in augmntd Lagrang multilir mthod. On way for normalizing th lastsquars rror or th objctiv function in Equation (9) is to divid ach individual contribution by th corrsonding B. This normalization s, l 8

PARAMETRIZATION OF DEVICE GEOMETRY Th tas of otimization is to itrativly calculat th nw valus of th slctd otimization aramtrs to modify th actual sha of th dvic, and thrfor to minimiz th objctiv function in ordr to achiv a dsird rformanc. Onc th valus of th dsign aramtrs ar calculatd, th gomtry is modifid by small incrmnts from its rvious sha to a nw sha, and nw itrations ar rformd until ths incrmntal changs do not significantly ffct th variation of th objctiv function. Prhas, on of th most difficult roblms in sha otimization roblms is to lin th gomtric otimization aramtrs to th hysical dvic gomtry dscribd by th crtain hysical dimnsions and th contours of th dvic (th

Modling th otimizd contour: a) triangular msh and dvic contour; b) numbring nods on th dvic contour and th usr dfind nots As th nw valus of th gomtric aramtrs ar calculatd, th dvic gomtry changs and thus th nw finit lmnt msh has to b gnratd for th nxt itration. For this uros, an automatic msh gnration algorithm is calld whnvr th dvic gomtry is modifid (Subramaniam t al. [3]). This howvr has crtain drawbacs, scially whn th gradint rror du to th discrtization is significantly larg in rgions containing coars lmnts (Wbr and Hool [8]). In this cas, th convrgnc bhavior of th otimization algorithm is significantly influncd by th discrtization rror du to discrtization of th roblm domain. This may joardiz obtaining smoothly convrging rsults sinc sis on th objctiv function gradint changs th dcrasing dirction of otimization. Th rvious wor showd that this roblm can b gratly circumvntd by maintaining th sam msh toology during th itrativ modification of th gomtry (Pironnau [4], Haslingr and Nittaanmai [6], Wbr and Hool [8], and Wbr [7]). Th nodal coordinats of th finit lmnt msh ar mad to th gomtric aramtrs. Thus, msh nods ar smoothly movd from on osition to anothr nsuring that th discrtization rror smoothly changs during this rocdur. During th itrativ modification of th dvic gomtry, four tys of msh nods ar considrd in trms of rstrictions on thir moving abilitis: Princial nods: nods on th dvic contour which dscribs th otimizd gomtry of th dvic. Princial nods ar allowd to mov only in th dirction of assignd dislacmnts; Associatd nods: msh nods which ar slctd by th usr and ar critical for th gomtry modification; thy mov along with th dflctd surfac in any dirction (unlss th rstrictions ar scifid by th usr) so as to rvnt any ossibl xcssiv lmnt dformation or ovrlaing in th finit lmnt rgion; Constraind nods: nods which ar constraind ithr horizontally or vrtically to avoid any ossibl violation of dvic's hysical gomtry. Fixd nods: nods which ar ithr far from th dflctd surfac (not quit influncd by th surfac dflction) or on th fixd dvic boundaris which ar not allowd to mov in any dirction to avoid any unwantd altration of th roblm gomtry. 6.. Otimizd Dvic Contour To xlain how th otimization gomtry is modld, considr th otimizd gomtry and th finit lmnt msh nods shown in Figur 3(a). Thr ar SN nods on th otimizd ortion of
13 Otimal Dsign of Nonlinar Magntic Systms... th dvic gomtry, and som of thm ar dirctly lind to th sha otimization aramtrs (th nodal dislacmnts as dfind arlir). Th dislacmnts dirctly control th gomtry of th dvic whil altring th gomtry (s Figur 3(b)). Th dislacmnts ar alid to som of th usrslctd SK nots (rincial nods) on th surfac. Sinc th otimizd surfac may b comlicatd in most roblms, ths nots ar chosn from ths nods, dfining th otimizd gomtry. Th rmaining SN SK nods on th gomtry surfac ar simly th associatd nods whos dislacmnt wights ar dtrmind from th wights of th nots by cubicslin introlation. Onc th incrmntal dislacmnts alid to th surfac nods th surfac is dflctd. Th total dflction in th dirction is xrssd by SK ( s) = Q d i ( ) i ( ) i= D (36) whr s is th aramtric distanc on th surfac, Q ( s), i is th basis of th dislacmnt wight associatd to th ith not on th surfac, and D (s) is th total dflction of th surfac aftr alying th incrmntal nodal dislacmnts d to th nots. Figur 4 shows th basis functions associatd with 5 nots slctd out of 4 surfac nods on an otimizd surfac. Th wights ta unit valus at th associatd not and vanish on th othr nots. For th surfac nods, th dislacmnt wights associatd to ach dislacmnt is calculatd from th basis functions as β = Q( s ) i ( ) i (37) Hr, using cubic slin introlation is found to b a good choic to smooth th jaggd contours on th otimizd gomtry. As th nw nodal dislacmnts ar udatd th nots ar movd. Thrfor, th indndnt nodal dislacmnts on th otimizd surfac ar lind to th intrnal msh nods in such a way that any dislacmnts of th surfac nods also ffct th nods of th subrgion. 6.. Msh Coordinats Th finit lmnt matrics and th magntic flux dnsitis insid th lmnts ar functions of som gomtric cofficints xrssd in trms of th vrtx coordinats of lmnts. If th otimization surfac is dflctd, th lmnts insid a crtain rgion ar dformd. Thrfor, th lmnt matrics and th magntic flux dnsitis chang with th dflction aramtrs. This sction rovids an stimatd analytical xrssion btwn th msh coordinats and th nodal dislacmnt aramtrs alid to th otimizd surfac. Th rlationshi btwn th dislacmnts and th coordinats of th finit lmnt msh is nonlinar sinc th nods narby th dflctd rgion mov mor than th ons far from th surfac. Th xrssion suggstd is usd for closd form drivativ calculations and is valid for small dislacmnts. Th dscribd msh dformation mthodology uss a fixd msh toology during th itrativ modification of th dvic gomtry. As th nw valus of nodal dislacmnts ar calculatd, th otimization surfac is dflctd, and th intrnal nods in th usrdfind subrgion mov along with th surfac nods. To avoid any ovrlaing lmnts, valus btwn and ar assignd to th dislacmnt wights, in such a way that th wights smoothly dcras as th distanc of th nods to th dflctd surfac incras (whil th wights of nods outsid th subrgion rmain zro).

Although limitd but somwhat quit attractiv for siml gomtris, analytical maing xrssd in trms of nodal dislacmnt wights was usd arlir by Marrocco and Pironnau [59], and Istfan and Salon [8]. Howvr, satisfying all constraints of comlx gomtris is avoidably difficult for gnral alications. A numrical maing tchniqu handling mor comlicatd gomtris is usd in th DOPTD rogram. Th msh structur is dflctd basd on structural laws of lasticity using an lastic body analogy to th structural subdomain including th otimizd dvic contour and its nighborhood whr th sha of lmnts may b critically distortd du to changs in gomtric dsign. Sinc th dflctd gomtry in th xy lan dos not vary along th zdirction (th axial dirction of th otimizd dvic), th lasticity roblm can b tratd as twodimnsional. Thrfor, th structural dflction is dscribd by dislacmnt vctor U ( x, y) with its comonnts u ( x, y) and v ( x, y) in th lanar coordinat dirctions x and y, rsctivly. Th analysis of th lan strss roblm is carrid out using th finit lmnt mthod.

If th nonlinarity is svr (i.., R > ε ), th gomtry is udatd and thn max R th global finit lmnt quations ar solvd using th FORWARD roblm. Ths comutd vctor otntials ar usd to udat th vctor otntials. Onc th vctor otntials ar udatd for th nw gomtry, th flux dnsitis at th tst oints ar valuatd and th lastsquars rror is comutd for th nxt itration. 9. RESULTS AND DISCUSSUIONS This sction is concrnd with th otimal dsign of synchronous machinry by using th DOPTD rogram dvlod and imlmntd in this ar. Th dsign objctiv usd for th roblms ariss from th rquirmnt of th airga flux dnsity to vary sinusoidally along outr rihry of th airga rgion. Th objctiv function is minimizd, in th sns of lastsquars, with rsct to th most snsitiv gomtric aramtrs subjct to gomtric constrains scifid. Th cas studis undrtan for unsaturatd and saturatd salintol, and saturatd roundrotor
