We have studied ways of predicting power losses in soft magnetic laminations for generic time dependence of the periodic magnetic polarization J(t). We found that, whatever the frequency and the induction waveform, the loss behavior can be quantitatively assessed within the theoretical framework of the statistical loss model. The prediction requires a limited set of preemptive experimental data, depending on whether or not the arbitrary J(t) waveform is endowed with local slope inversions (i.e., minor hysteresis loops) in its periodic time behavior. In the absence of minor loops, such data reduce, for any peak polarization value Jp, to the loss figures obtained under sinusoidal J(t) at two different frequency values. In the presence of minor loops of semiamplitude Jm, the two-frequency loss experiment should be carried out for both peak polarization values Jp and Jm. Additional knowledge of the quasi-static major loop, to be used for modeling hysteresis loss, does improve the accuracy of the prediction method. A more general approach to loss in soft magnetic laminations is obtained in this way, the only limitation apparently being the onset of skin effect at high frequencies.
