The design of multi‐domain that considers all components of electromagnetic systems such as air, iron, magnet, and coil is investigated using topology optimization, interpolation method, and FEM. The design sensitivity equation for topology optimization is derived using the adjoint variable method and the continuum approach. The proposed method is applied to topology optimization of C‐core actuator and shows significant improvement.
