This paper presents a semi-physical parameter identification for a recently proposed enhanced iron-loss formula, the IEM-Formula. Measurements are performed on a standardized Epstein frame by the conventional field-metric method under sinusoidal magnetic flux densities up to high magnitudes and frequencies. Quasi-static losses are identified on the one hand by point-by-point dc-measurements using a flux-meter and on the other hand by extrapolating higher frequency measurements to dc magnetization using the statistical loss-separation theory (Jacobs etal, “Magnetic material optimization for hybrid vehicle PMSM drives,” in Inductica Conference, CD-Rom, Chicago/USA, 2009). Utilizing this material information, possibilities to identify the parameter of the IEM-Formula are analyzed. Along with this, the importance of excess losses in present-day non-grain oriented Fe-Si laminations is investigated. In conclusion, the calculated losses are compared to the measured losses.
