Design optimization of permanent magnet clutches can be an effective solution for minimization of the volume at a given torque output. This study proposes an optimization method for permanent magnet clutch, which allows obtaining a complex and detailed design. Design and optimization model of the clutch, optimization method and algorithm are comprehensively discussed. optimization using 2D finite element analysis, combined with a genetic algorithm is demonstrated. The obtained optimal shapes reduced the volume of clutch discs by 31% while the maximum integral attraction force met the limit.
