DTU Studieprojekt – Topology optimization of a Grundfos motor – Danmarks Tekniske Universitet (DTU) – København

Topology optimization of a Grundfos motor Udbyder Vejleder Sted København og omegn A Grundfos motor, like all electromotors, uses permanent magnets. It is critically important that these magnets provide the ideal magnetic field, i.e. the field that results in the most efficient motor possible.However, as the permanent magnets are made of rare-earth elements it is also crucially important to limit the amount used in a motor as much as possible, as the rare-earth materials are both rare, costly to mine, and subjective to geo-political supply restrictions. Thus, it is highly sustainable to use the least amount of magnet material possible.Similar arguments apply for the copper windings in the motor, which should also use the least amount of material possible, without sacrificing performance, as copper is becoming an increasingly expensive material. The requirement that optimizes motor performance, but use as little material, both magnet, copper and other materials, as possible means that we must think of new ways to design the motor and optimize this.In this project we want to explore a novel numerical technique that can be used to design ideal geometries, namely topology optimization. This is a technique that optimizes a material layout within a given design space and it would be ideal to attempt to determine a new design for a Grundfos motor that fulfils the above requirements.You will get to make a numerical model of a Grundfos motor and apply topology optimization on this. You will do this working together with the Grundfos motor team, as well as DTU experts.
