The Robust Optimization Design for Breaking Spring of Spring Actuator of Vacuum Circuit Breaker
In this paper, the concept of robust optimization design for the breaking spring of spring actuator of vacuum circuit breaker is presented. The function, that is to minimize the error and maximal variations of spring stiffness coefficient related with structure parameters and its tolerances, is chosen as the objective function, and the acceptable region of the tolerances is formed by some constraints. The optimum parameters of the breaking spring are given by solving the nonlinear programming problem with multi-target and two-level optimization, and the optimization results are discussed.
