Macroscopic behavior of ferromagnetic materials can be considered as the resultant of three phenomena: hysteresis, eddy current, and excess loss. Hysteresis is the behavior of the material under quasi-static variation of magnetic field. Eddy-current and excess losses are dependent on the rate of field variation and are evident in the fast variation of the magnetic field, so they are called dynamic effects. This paper presents a simple and practical technique in field analysis of electromagnetic systems having hysteresis and dynamic effects. Based on the Preisach model for hysteresis and existing formulations for eddy currents and excess loss, an equivalent expression for field intensity has been introduced. A new technique has been presented in order to include this expression in the finite-element code. A typical system has been modeled by this code. Effects of relaxation and time step were examined on the stability and the convergence rate of the method. The validity of the proposed model has been checked by comparing its results with experimental measurements
