This paper presents a deterministic optimization algorithm applied to the optimal design of electromagnetic actuators. The algorithm is based on interval arithmetics and constraint propagation, and aims at solving nonlinear optimization problems by enclosing the global optimum. A new reformulation step is introduced in order to accelerate the convergence of the algorithm and increase solution accuracy. Numerical tests have been performed on the optimal design of electromagnetic actuator.
