This paper proposes the design optimization procedure of three-phase interior permanent magnet (IPM) synchronous motors with minimum weight, maximum power output, and suitability for wide constant-power region operation. The particular rotor geometry of the IPM synchronous motor and the presence of several variables and constraints make the design problem very complicated. The authors propose to combine an accurate finite-element analysis with a multiobjective optimization procedure using a new algorithm belonging to the class of controlled random search algorithms. The optimization procedure has been employed to design two IPM motors for industrial application and a city electrical scooter. A prototype has been realized and tested. The comparison between the predicted and measured performances shows the reliability of the simulation results and the effectiveness, versatility, and robustness of the proposed procedure.
