In this paper, the optimal design of the Flux-Switching Generator with ferrite magnets based on a two-mode substituting load profile for a gearless wind generator is considered. A one-criterion Nelder-Mead method is used to optimize the generator design. The optimization function is constructed mainly so as to minimize the average losses in the generator and the required AC–DC converter power. Also, the Flux-Switching Generator torque-ripple and the ferrite magnets volume are minimized. Using substituting profiles instead of initial ones reduces the calculation efforts substantially. The paper contains the analysis of the optimal design of the Flux-Switching Generator with ferrite magnets.
