This study deals with the simplex optimization of a shield coil geometry for improving the magnetic shielding performance of fully air-cored superconducting generators. The superconducting generator in this study has a 10 MW-3000 rpm class, fully air-cored, rotating armature structure designed for electric propulsion aircraft applications. The magnetic flux radiated to the outside of the machine is shielded by the shield coil, and the shielding performance is determined by the shape of the shield coil. In this study, the design of the shield coil is developed using simplex optimization to improve the shield performance. The shape optimization is conducted using the simplex optimal design method, and the validity of the designed shield coil is verified by comparing the shielding performance of the initial and the optimized models.
