Optimizing Coils

Application ID: 48041

Several different approaches to optimizing a ten-turn axisymmetric coil are presented.

First, the current in each turn is adjusted with the objective of having a uniform magnetic flux density along the centerline. Second, the currents are adjusted to minimize power dissipation with a constraint on field minimum at a point. Third, the currents are adjusted to minimize the gradient in the magnetic flux density along the centerline, along with a constraint on the field value. Finally, the positions of the coils, and the current, are adjusted to achieve a specified magnetic flux density at the centerline.

These models showcase shape and parameter optimization for magnetic field modeling.

You can find a detailed description of these models in the blog post "3 Ways to Optimize the Current in Electromagnetic Coils".

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
