Abstract: The study of the efficiency of using electrical materials is of great interest in the field of manufacturing electrical machines. One
of the most important aspects of the manufacture of electrical machines is the design of the magnetic cores of the machine. Magnetic
cores made of various magnetically soft materials are used as a magnetic system. These materials differ in magnetic permeability and
specific magnetic losses. These material parameters affect the heating, size, cost and efficiency of electric machines. In order to
reduce expenses, the experimental evaluation of the parameters of soft magnetic materials is carried out on samples of various shapes
and sizes, on special experimental setups, in accordance with international electrotechnical standards. This article proposes an
experimental setup for laboratory studies of the magnetic properties of soft magnetic materials by the method of ring specimens, in
accordance with the IEC-60404-6 standard. The setup uses only standard inexpensive equipment. The required shape factor of the
magnetic flux density is achieved by sequential correction of the secondary winding voltage using a digital regulator. The approach
to the software implementation of the algorithm for sequential correction of the secondary winding voltage is described in the article.
The proposed experimental setup was used to study the properties of a sample made of a soft magnetic composite powder material
Somaloy 700-3p (800 MPa) and compare the results with the manufacturer's catalog data. Based on the results of the work, it was
revealed that the proposed setup can be used to measure the properties of soft magnetic materials in accordance with the IEC-60404-
6 standard with the required accuracy. The proposed experimental setup can be used both as a training stand and as a measuring
installation for identifying the properties of soft magnetic materials in the design of electrical machines.
