Loss due to Transverse Field in Grain-oriented Steels Considering Anisotropy Based on Modified RSS by Shuaichao Yue

Posted on 11 May 2021 by Kevin Jones

Introduction The transverse flux and associated losses have been proven to exist even when electrical steel is magnetized longitudinally. This blog presents a systematic analysis of loss properties of 0.23mm GO steel, considering both anisotropy and the transverse magnetic field based on a modified rotational single sheet tester (RSST). Origin of transverse flux The transverse

Understanding the degradation of soft magnetic materials through the manufacturing process of electric motors

Posted on 17 March 2021 by Philip Anderson

There is an unprecedented level of interest in soft magnetic materials which make up the cores of motors largely driven (excuse the pun) by developments in areas such as more electric transportation. With manufacturers pushing the envelope of machine design it is imperative that our understanding of the performance of the materials under these conditions
