Abstract

This paper presents a new numerical approach for shape optimization of resistors with complex geometry. The aim of this method is to develop a systematic modification of resistor design in combination with the computation of the electric field, in order to optimize some chosen properties like homogenization of the power dissipation on the resistor surface.
