This paper describes topology optimization of electromagnetic systems using the multigrid method. The topology optimization employs uniform rectangular finite elements, in which the multigrid method works effectively as a fast linear solver. Moreover, the present method uses a new optimization algorithm, based on the artificial immune systems paradigm, in which the multilevel search is carried out.
