A phenomenological vector hysteresis model is developed to represent dynamic and weakly anisotropic vector hysteretic properties of nonoriented silicon steel sheets. The anisotropic vector hysteresis is represented by the multiplication of an anisotropy matrix and an isotropic vector play model. An eddy-current field vector given by classical eddy-current theory and an anomaly factor is added to the vector hysteresis model. The anomaly factor is determined to model the decrease in anomalous eddy-current loss under conditions of large rotational magnetic flux. The alternating and rotational properties simulated by the proposed model reconstruct the measured magnetic properties of nonoriented silicon steel sheets.
