One important factor in the design process and optimization of electrical machines and drives are iron losses in the core. By using new composite materials and low-loss electrical Silicon-Iron (SiFe) steels, the losses in the magnetic flux conducting parts of the machine can be reduced significantly. However, it is necessary to have accurate but also easy implementable iron loss models to take the loss effects into account, preferable already during the first design steps and simulations of new electrical machines.
The goal of this paper is to give an overview of available iron loss models and to summarize and compare certain models for analytical and numerical machine design methods.
