Abstract

We apply the SIMP (Solid Isotropic Material with Penalization) method for the topology optimization of an electromagnetic actuator. Thereby, the gradient of the objective function is computed by the adjoint method. The objective to maximize is the electromagnetic force between yoke and anchor, including the consideration of nonlinear material behaviour. Additionally, the pros and cons between topology optimization and a gradient free optimization method are considered.
