Design study of a three-phase brushless exciter for aircraft starter/generator


This paper presents a design study of a 3-phase AC main exciter (ME) for an aircraft starter-generator. A computationally efficient methodology for optimizing the design of the ME is presented. The optimisation is carried out using coupled two-dimensional (2D) magnetostatic finite element solver and particle swarm optimisation procedure (PSO). The ME design… (More)
