Paper Abstract

Thermal is one of critical factors effecting the application of Terfenol-D ultrasonic magnetostrictive transducer. Hysteresis losses are the main source for heating the it. A new method of hysteresis losses calculation, which based on Jiles-Atherton hysteresis model and electro-magnetic field finite element analysis, is proposed in this paper. The hysteresis losses obtained by this method can be used as thermal sources in electro-thermal finite element analysis of Terfenol-D ultrasonic transducer.
