In this paper, application of the Surface Current Method (SCM) in analysis and optimization of electromechanical devices is proposed. SCM is one of the numerical techniques in electromagnetic field analysis. In SCM, only magnetic boundaries are subdivided against Finite Element Method (FEM) which is subdivided into all of domains; therefore, the calculation resources of SCM are much lower than FEM. SCM with
low-calculation resource is one of the best numerical techniques for magnetic devices' optimization. In this paper, using SCM, three electromechanical systems have been optimized based on minimization of weight per force. Veri cation of simulation results is done by FEM.
