In many industries, the linear motor replaces the existing framework for linear transportation. Similar to other conventional motors, it is important to minimize the ripple of thrust and to maximize the thrust force of the linear motor. Because the two objectives are associated to each other, the multi-objective design process is necessary considering all objectives. This paper intends to optimize geometric parameters of the linear motor with two design objectives using design of experiments and sequential response surface method.
