Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors offer high efficiency and power density besides low assembly effort and hence have been established in a wide market over the past years. Especially buried magnets enable a superior field weakening ability but require an exceptional design effort. Costly Finite Elements computations are inevitable for consideration of the occurring non-linearity and non-trivial magnet shapes. The Response Surface Methodology can reduce the number of FE runs significantly by introducing an acceptably exact second order regression model based on a few carefully chosen design samples. Instead of commonly used, but time-consuming Evolutionary Strategy methods, the Monte Carlo approach is applied for optimization. Using simple filter algorithms, distinctive Pareto frontiers can be determined quickly and related to their causative motor designs.
