Finite elements are used to compute eddy currents and magnetic diffusion times in steel cylinders with nonlinear B--H curves. Computations are made of diffusion times versus current in a typical axisymmetric magnetic actuator, showing good agreement with recently published approximate analytical formulas. The computed nonlinear diffusion times are then used to derive an equivalent resistor that is used in a model of an electrohydraulic system. The diffusion time causes delays in the coupled mechanical and hydraulic responses.
