The single hysteron model is identified to reconstruct the magnetization processes of a grain-oriented electrical steel and it is implemented in a finite-element scheme. The model involves the Zeeman energy and the anisotropy energy of the material and an interaction field to take into account others terms, such as the magnetoelastic energy, the exchange energy, inclusions, and crystallographic discontinuities. The interaction field is evaluated experimentally using a round rotational single sheet tester, where a disk sample of the material is excited for several rotational magnetization processes. Details about the finite-element scheme, the computational time, and the memory allocations involved in the simulations are presented and discussed.
