In this paper, the potential of thin sheet SiFe NO20 and nanocrystalline materials for the realization of the magnetic circuit of high-speed machines is analyzed in a complete procedure. Firstly, intrinsic properties of materials are precisely characterized. Next, the original and a modified model of Bertotti are applied for the modeling of power losses. These models are then used to predict losses in a simplified test bench which simulates the magnetic core of a real machine. FEM simulations in Altair FLUX 2D and experimental measurements are respectively carried out and results obtained show a good agreement leading to the confirmation of the potential of materials and the validation of the realized procedure.
