MAGNET Design Optimisation (was OptiNet) is a powerful 2D/3D optimisation tool, and allows both continuous and discreet parameter optimisation.
MAGNET Design Optimisation is an automated design optimisation option to MAGNET, MAGNET Electric, and when either or both are coupled to Thermal. Using advanced and efficient algorithms, MAGNET Design Optimisation can find optimal values for different design variables within the constraints specified.
MAGNET Design Optimisation 's useful features include:
Continuous-value and discrete-value variables and optimisation
Evolutionary-based Stochastic search is very efficient, even for a large number of parameters
Built-in and customizable scripts for objective functions and constraints
Evaluate the impact of variations in the design parameters.
MAGNET Design Optimisation offers an integrated Automated Optimal Design environment compatible with the industrial design process by meeting the following requirements:
Independent of the number of design variables, problem type and objective
Global Search Oriented
Identifies the global minimum of an objective function
MAGNET Design Optimisation avoids errors by using proper functions and not their derivatives
Highest possible efficiency with freedom to choose between accuracy and computing time
We work hard every day to make life of our clients better and happier
Typically performance requirements, component & physical limitations and production-based limitations amongst other factors
Parameters from models in MAGNET, MAGNET Electric or MAGNET Thermal are identified as design variables by MAGNET Design Optimisation
Design variables are one of four types
Discrete list of values
with improved results.
Weighted constraints including absolute type which must be satisfied
Model-based and Solution-based constraints
Common constraint types are pre-defined
User-defined constraints supported.
Supports weighted multiple objectives for a design problem
Model-based and Solution-based objectives
Common types of objective functions are included
User-defined optimization objectives supported.
All attempted permutations are reported as improved, not improved or failed
Information reported includes the values of the variables, constraints & objectives
