Note: The B(H) curve is defined with an analytical model as described in the Advanced section: Create a B(H) curve.
Note: Iron losses are not considered in solid materials.
Note: The relation between the electrical resistivity and the temperature is described in Advanced section: “Impact of temperature on physical properties”.
Note: The thermal conductivity of solid regions is constant whatever is the temperature of the region.
