 Abstract
The shape optimization of a Thomson coil actuator used in an arc eliminator is done for fast response by adopting topology modification method. The displacement of the plate in a fixed calculation time is taken as the objective function. The objective function and contribution factor are calculated by using an adaptive equivalent circuit method which has been proved accurate and efficient. Both shape optimization and performance analysis are accomplished based on the segmentation of plate. Through the refinement of the sensitive segments a precise optimal plate shape can be obtained. The effectiveness of the proposed method is proved by the comparison of results before and after the shape optimization.
