This paper concerns the force density optimization for medium-stroke reluctance actuators applied in anti-vibration applications. The force density in a conventional E-core reluctance actuator is limited for medium strokes by the nonlinear force-displacement characteristic. In this paper, different tooth topologies are analyzed to maximize the force density along the stroke using the finite element analysis. Teeth parameters are tuned in each topology to analyze the influences on the force density. An analytic thermal model is used and verified with finite element simulations.
