In this paper, the optimization of electromechanical devices by continuous sensitivity analysis and its comparison with Taguchi method is investigated. The present research can be useful for researchers in one of the important and practical issues that is the optimization of different systems. In practice, it will be observed that the continuous sensitivity analysis method, in addition to achieving significant results, also increases the convergence rate significantly compared with the Taguchi method. In addition to the above, this dissertation also tries to improve the method of continuous sensitivity analysis, which has been done using the help of interpolation such as Spline and Bizar. One of the advantages of the continuous sensitivity analysis method using Spline interpolation in comparison with the Taguchi method is the absence of sharp angles at the optimized border and ease of construction. This specification is of great importance in electromagnetic devices. The main purpose of this article is to compile a complete and understandable reference for use in today's industry and further studies.
