Case study 3: Optimization of the  capacitor head in GCB

  • Optimization of the capacitor head in the generator circuit breaker (GCB)
  • Initial cylindrical form is converted through the automatic optimization procedure to the optimal shape
  • The absolute minimal field strength is obtained thanks to the fact that global optimum is reached
  • The animation illustrates the generation of the optimal form of the capacitor head through an iterative optimization algorithm used in POLOPT/Optim
