Abstract

The goal of this investigation is to determine the advantages of using genetic algorithms in computer-aided design as applied to inductors.  These advantages are exploited in design problems with a number of specifications and constraints, as encountered in power electronics during practical inductor design. The design tool should be able to select components, such as cores and wires, from databases of available components, and evaluate these choices based on the components’ characteristic data read from a database of manufacturers’ data-sheets.  The proposed design must always be practically realizable, as close to the desired specifications as possible and within any specified constraints.
