  • A mathematical model is set up that can be useful for controlled voltage excitation in time-dependent electromagnetism.The well-posedness of the model is proved and an associated optimal control problem is investigated. Here, the controlfunction is a transient voltage and the aim of the control is the best approximation of desired electric and magnetic fields insuitable $L^2$ -norms.Special emphasis is laid on an adjoint calculus for first-order necessary optimality conditions.Moreover, a peculiar attention is devoted to propose a formulation for which the computational complexity of the finite element solution method is substantially reduced.
