Research Axis

The team Numerical Tools and Methods works on the development of numerical models and effective methodologies aimed to the optimal design and study of electromagnetic devices within their environment.

Among the topics covered, we can quote :

  • Characterization and modelling of the electromagnetic behaviour of magnetic materials while taking account for the impact of manufacturing processes.
  • Development of models of various granularities (finite elements, reluctance networks, response surfaces … etc)
  • Development and implementation of advanced numerical methods to reduce computation time (error estimation, order model reduction…)
  • Coupling between different physical models with distinct time constants
  • Taking into account the variability of the input quantities in order to evaluate the dispersion on the quantities of interest (quantification of uncertainties).
  • Development of multi-disciplinary, multi-level, multi-scale optimization methodologies as well as the development of optimization strategies.
  • Optimal design of electrical machines including multi-physics issues such as noise and vibration but also the integration of the operating cycle.
  • Study of healthy and faulty electromagnetic devices for diagnostic purposes.

The results of the work developed are capitalized in a software platform which includes the Sophémis optimization code and code_Carmel finite element code. The latter is co-developed in collaboration with EDF Lab within the framework of the joint LAMEL laboratory.

Key words

3D finite elements, characterization and modelling of magnetic materials, quantification of uncertainties, order model reduction, error estimation, optimization design, methodologies and optimization strategies, electrical machines within their environment, electromagnetic diagnosis, multi-objective optimization, multi-level, multi-physics and multi-granularity, operating cycle.
