Two different approaches to hysteresis modeling are compared using a common ground based on energy relations, defined in terms of dissipated and stored energy. Using the Preisach model and assuming that magnetization is mainly due to domain-wall motion, one can derive the expression of magnetization along a major loop typical of the Jiles–Atherton model and then extend its validity to cases where mean-field effects and reversible contributions are present. © 1998 American Institute of Physics.
