Title: The Effect of Spark Ablation on High Permeability Grain-Oriented 3% Silicon Iron under Two-Dimensional Magnetization

Abstract

Spark ablation method is one of the techniques used to improve performance in rolling direction of grain oriented 3% silicon iron sheets. In some parts of electrical devices such as the cores of electrical motors, and the transformers, notably joints, the magnetization vector has a two-dimensional as well as a one-dimensional (rolling direction), components. The former caused an increase in total core losses. In this paper, a study on magnetic properties of the spark ablated material under two-dimensional magnetization is presented.

  • The effects of laser irradiation on iron loss reduction for Fe-3%Si grain-oriented silicon steel sheet were investigated. The local tensile residual stress states near the laser irradiated cavity lines were observed by using the new X-ray stress measurement method for a single crystal. Although the higher laser power induced the larger tensile residual stresses, the minimum iron loss was obtained at the medium tensile residual stress conditions of about 100-200 MPa. The increase of Vickers hardness was observed with increasing laser power, which was the mark of the plastic deformations induced by the laser irradiation. The tensile residual stress reducesmore » eddy current loss and the plastic deformation increases hysteresis loss of the material. The total iron loss is determined by the balance of these two effects of laser irradiation.« less
  • Rotational magnetization of grain oriented SiFe sheets involves three mechanisms: anisotropy, hysteresis and eddy currents. Apart from describing the respective physical background, the paper is focused on a separation of mechanisms. It discusses dependencies between field quantities which in the dynamic case are complicated by the fact that a three-dimensional field problem arises here. It is demonstrated that within a plane inner surface of a sheet, the magnetic behavior is independent of frequency in approximation. On the other hand, eddy currents yield phase shifts between individual surfaces. Respective rotational losses and their portions are discussed on the basis of Poynting'smore » theorem.« less
  • The influence of surface properties on the magnetic properties of grain-oriented silicon steel was investigated through measurements of iron losses and magnetic domain patterns in an oxide film-coated and mirror surface-finished specimen, with tensile stress applied in the rolling direction. When the surface roughness is reduced, the hysteresis loss falls rapidly, presumably because of the enhanced mobility of the domain wall. When the tensile stress is increased to about 10 MPa, the eddy current loss is reduced due to the refinement of magnetic domains, but above 10 MPa or so it gradually declines, presumably due to the rotation of themore » magnetization direction.« less
  • A hysteresis curve of ac magnetostriction was measured, magnetizing a grain oriented silicon steel in the direction deviated from rolling direction of a sample. The ac magnetostriction ({lambda} ac) curves were analyzed as harmonics in the interest of noise spectrum of such as a power transformer. The domain structure model in this magnetostriction process was proposed. The hysteresis was large in the magnetization direction inclined at 30 and 90{degree} from the rolling direction.
  • Finite-temperature micromagnetics simulations are employed to study the magnetization- switching dynamics driven by a field applied at an angle to the long axis of an iron nanopillar. A bi-modal distribution in the switching times is observed, and evidence for two competing modes of magnetization-switching dynamics is presented. For the conditions studied here, temperature T = 20 K and the reversal field 3160 Oe at an angle of 75┬░ to the long axis, approximately 70% of the switches involve unstable decay (no free-energy barrier) and 30% involve metastable decay (a free-energy barrier is crossed). The latter are indistinguishable from switches whichmore » are constrained to start at a metastable free-energy minimum. Competition between unstable and metastable decay could greatly complicate applications involving magnetization switches near the coercive field.« less
