This paper presents an approach to Genetic Algorithm (GA)-based computer-aided autonomous electromagnetic design of 2-phase Switched Reluctance Motor drives. The proposed drive is designed for compressor drives in low-priced refrigerators as an alternative to existing brushless DC motors drives with rare-earth magnets. In the proposed design approach, three GA loops work to optimize the lamination design so as to meet the requirements for the target application under the given constraints while simultaneously fine-tuning the control parameters. To achieve the design optimization within an acceptable CPU-time, the repeated-calculation required to obtain fitness evaluation in the proposed approach does not use FEM, but consists of geometric flux tube-based non-linear magnetic analysis and a dynamic simulator based on an analytical expression of the magnetizing curves obtained from the non-linear magnetic analysis. The design results show the proposed approach can autonomously find a feasible design solution of SRM drive for the target application from huge search space. The experimental studies using a 2-phase 8/6 prototype manufactured in accordance with the optimized design parameters show the validity of the proposed approach.
