© 2002-2011 IEEE. This paper investigates the efficient robust design and optimization of a high-Temperature superconducting (HTS) linear synchronous motor by using the Taguchi parameter design approach. The manufacturing tolerances of the HTS magnets, primary iron core and the air gap are considered in the robust design to ensure that the optimal design is less sensitive to these uncertainties. To overcome the disadvantages of the conventional Taguchi parameter design approach, a sequential Taguchi robust optimization method is presented for improvement of the motor performance and manufacturing quality. The proposed method is efficient because it holds the advantages of both Taguchi method and sequential optimization strategy. It can significantly increase the average thrust and decrease the thrust ripple of the investigated HTS linear synchronous motor.
