An efficient moving mesh algorithm with fast solver is proposed for remeshing the parameterized computation domain so as to embed finite element methods into optimization algorithms for optimizing the shapes of electromagnetic devices. The proposed method has the merits of conserving the original mesh structure with minimal mesh deformation. The developed algorithm has been applied to TEAM workshop problem No. 25. The reported results are used to showcase the efficiency and validity of the algorithm.
