The cutting process has a substantial influence on the ferromagnetic material properties of electrical steel sheets. In this paper, the properties of the degraded and nondegraded zones result from data obtained by two Epstein frame measurements using sample strips of two different widths. The magnetic characteristics of the degraded and nondegraded material are inserted into a finite-element model, which accounts for arbitrary geometries. The simulation results for the influence of degradation on a stator lamination stack are verified by measurements at three different frequencies and two different materials.
