Description

Electrical steels are critical components of magnetic cores used in applications ranging from large rotating machines, including energy generating equipment, and transformers to small instrument transformers and harmonic filters. Presented over two volumes, this comprehensive handbook provides full coverage of the state-of-the-art in electrical steels.

Electrical Steels Volume 1: Fundamentals and basic concepts covers –

• Soft magnetic materials; basic magnetic concepts; magnetic domains, energy minimisation and magnetostriction and methods of observing magnetic domains in electrical steels.
• Electromagnetic induction; fundamentals of a.c. signals; losses and eddy currents in soft magnetic materials and rotational magnetisation and losses.
• Anistropy of iron and its alloys; magnetic circuits; the effect of mechanical stress on loss, permeability and magnetostriction and magnetic measurements on electrical steels.
• Background to modern electrical steels; production of electrical steels; amorphous and nano-crystalline soft magnetic materials; nickel-iron, cobalt-iron and aluminium-iron alloys; consolidated iron powder and ferrite cores; and temperature and irradiation dependence of magnetic and mechanical properties of soft magnetic materials.


Electrical Steels Volume 2: Performance and applications covers –

• Localised characteristics of electrical steels; practical properties of electrical steels; other electrical steels and prediction of losses in electrical steels.
• Application of electrical steels in transformer cores; applications of electrical steels in rotating electrical machines; non-sinusoidal magnetisation and applications and magnetic building factors in electrical steel cores.
• Use of amorphous ribbon and nano-materials in transformer cores; electrical machine core vibration and noise; approaches to predictions and measurements of flux density and loss distributions in electrical machine cores.
• The application of international standards to magnetic alloys and steels; electrical steels and renewable energy systems; environmental impact of electrical steels; and typical performance data of commercial electrical steels.

About the Authors

Anthony Moses is Emeritus Professor of Magnetics at Cardiff University, UK where he was previously Director of the Wolfson Centre for Magnetics. His research focuses on aspects of the production, characterization, and application of soft magnetic materials. He has authored more than 500 papers. He previously served as Chairman of the U.K. Magnetics Society and Chair of the International Organizing Committee of the Soft Magnetic Materials (SMM) series of conferences.

Keith Jenkins worked at the British Steel Electrical Steels Research Department, Orb Works for over 35 years in a variety of technical and research functions, where he built up a wide network of contacts with other electrical steel makers, transformer and motor manufacturers, including Nippon Steel (Japan), Posco (Korea), ThyssenKrupp (Germany), AK Steel (USA), Siemens and ABB (Europe), RollsRoyce (UK). Recently he has been an honorary visiting professor at the Magnetics and Materials Group at Cardiff University’s School of Engineering.

Philip Anderson is a Senior Lecturer in the Magnetics and Materials Group at Cardiff University’s School of Engineering. He has 25 years of research experience focussing on the on the development, application and characterisation of soft magnetic materials. He is a member of the British and International Standards Committees on Magnetic Alloys and Steels together with the International Organising Committees of several major magnetics conference series.

Hugh Stanbury joined the Electrical Steels Research Department of the British Steel Corporation after graduating in Physics from Imperial College. He progressed to Technical Manager of Orb Electrical Steels, Cogent Power and was responsible for
