Multi-Objective Optimization Analysis of Motor Cooling System in Articulated Dump Truck


Article Preview

In order to ensure the reliable and safe operation of the electric driving motor of the articulated dump truck, water cooling system is installed for each motor. For the best performance of the water cooling system, not only the heat transfer should be enhanced to maintain the motor in relatively low temperature, but also the pressure drop in the water cooling system should be reduced to save energy by reducing the power consumption of the pump. In this paper, the numerical simulation of the cooling progress is completed and the temperature and pressure field distribution are obtained. The multi-objective optimization model is established which involves the cooling system structure, temperature field distribution and pressure field distribution. To improve the computational efficiency, the surrogate model of the simulation about the cooling process is established based on the Response Surface Methodology (RSM). After the multi-objective optimization, the Pareto optimal set is obtained. The proper design point, which could make the average temperature and pressure drop of the cooling system relative desirable, is chosen from the Pareto optimal set.
