This work is about optimizing synchronous reluctance machines considering a topology optimization (TO) based approach. This technique gives more flexibility when comparing with finding ideal parameters for predefined geometries. A consistent approach is presented that reduces the overall computational effort compared to classical TO. In addition, attention is paid on obtaining designs ready for manufacturing. By contrast to the majority of previous work, the analysis encompasses multiple often conflicting objectives relevant for manufacturers and consequent customers, i.e. efficiency, torque ripple and power factor. Based on the derived results, an individual tradeoff can be found and new insights into optimal designs for various applications can be gained.
