Abstract:

Reputation, or accommodation, is manifested in ferromagnetic materials in a variety of operating regimes and hence must be incorporated in models used for comprehensive material characterization or model-based control design. Because the microscopic mechanisms which cause reputation are complex, we characterize the effect in a phenomenological macroscopic manner within the context of a homogenized energy framework for ferromagnetic hystersis. Attributes of the model are illustrated through comparison with experimental data.
