Design and optimization of coreless components using admittance matrix and efficiently calculated sensitivities
Journal article, 2007
This paper presents a novel technique for designing coreless components (inductors and transformers) based on the admittance matrix at quasi-static approximation. In addition, an optimization method based on continuum sensitivity is applied. Efficiency of the design method is shown for inductors that have axisymmetry and carry azimuthal currents. In order to avoid coupling between closely located inductors, a shielding structure is proposed and shape-optimized to confine the magnetic energy.
