A problem of optimal magnetization is considered. It is related to the time-optimal
switching between magnetic fields and leads to the minimization of a tracking type
functional subject to a system of parabolic equations of differential algebraic type. We
discuss the sensitivity analysis and present 3D numerical results for a slightly
simplified geometry.
