The optimization of continuous parameters in electrotechnical design using electromagnetic field simulation is already standard. In this paper, we present a new sequential modelling approach for mixed-integer simulation-based optimization. We apply the method for the optimization of integer- and real-valued geometrical parameters of the coils of a superconductive magnet.
