Investigation of Tradeoffs between Efficiency, Mass, Cost, Service Factor, and Power Factor in Induction Machines 2010-01-1785

The focus of this research is to perform a detailed investigation of the tradeoffs between mass, efficiency, service factor (SF), power factor (PF), and cost of commercially available induction machines (IMs). To support this effort, data from a large number of IMs is used to establish Pareto-optimal fronts between these competing objectives. From the Pareto-optimal fronts, relatively straightforward models are formulated for the mass versus loss, cost versus loss, SF versus mass, PF versus cost. Parameters of the models are obtained using a genetic algorithm (GA).
