# Mask and Parameters

## General Parameters

Description | Use this field to add all kinds of information about the component |

Flux-current model | Model saturation only or saturation with hysteresis |

Iteration in saturation model | Enable or disable iteration to achieve more accurate results at the expense of computation time when the saturation segment changes |

Magnetization Impedance Parameters

**Rm:**Equivalent resistance of iron losses of the magnetic circuit (Ω)

## Winding Parameters

| Rated voltage of the winding (kV) |

| Leakage resistance of the winding (Ω) |

| Leakage inductance of the winding (H) |

## Saturation Parameters

The saturation is characteristic of the core, thus of the winding and not the type of 3-phase connection (Y, Delta or Zigzag). It is represented only for the magnetization branch (schematically using line segments).

| Number of segments of the current-flux saturation curve; only the positive part of the curve must be specified, the negative part being completed by symmetry |

| Current for each segment of the saturation curve; the origin (0,0) is implied (A) |

| Flux for each segment of the saturation curve; the origin (0.0,0.0) is implied (V.s) |

## Hysteresis Parameters

The main hysteresis cycle is characterized by four parameters. It is measured in DC so as not to include the Foucault losses, which are considered by the parallel resistance (Rm). The initial trajectory is characterized by only one parameter, the initial flux. Two other special parameters serve to minimize the generation of internal nested loops, and their corresponding trajectories, saved in memory (e.g. the loops that are too small will be ignored and their trajectories modeled by a straight line segment).

This is useful since their number must be limited (100 which suffices in most simulated cases). Above this cycle (limited to ±Is), the saturation zone is entered. The saturation is then characterized either by a series of points on the curve or by an inductance that the curve approaches asymptotically. In this last case, the model generates automatically segments (in the positive and negative saturation zone) of equal length (Is).

| Determines if the saturation curve is calculated by the model or defined by a series of segments (Equation, Curve) |

| Value of the saturation inductance that the curve approaches asymptotically (H) |

| Flux slope at coercive current (H) |

| Positive coercive current at null flux (A) |

| Current value of the first point in the saturation zone (A) |

| Special parameter limiting the generation of minor nested loops. When the magnetizing current values at the last inversion point and the preceding inversion point are closer than the specified tolerance (in % of Ic), it is assumed that there is a displacement on a trajectory represented by a straight line segment. |

| Positive remanent flux at null current (V.s) |

| Flux value of the first point in the saturation zone (V.s) |

| Special parameter limiting the generation of minor nested loops. When the flux values at the last inversion point and the preceding inversion point are closer than the specified tolerance (in % of Φs), it is assumed that there is a displacement on the current loop. |

| Initial flux determining initial trajectory which is calculated by supposing that it has an inversion point on the main cycle (V.s) |

| Number of segments of the current-flux saturation curve; only the positive part of the curve must be specified, the negative part being completed by symmetry |

| Current for each segment of the saturation curve; the first value must be equal to Is (A) |

| Flux for each segment of the saturation curve; the first value must be equal to Φs (V.s) |
