1) Hysteresis loss and eddy current loss: What’s the difference?
All electric motors experience rotational losses during the conversion of electrical power to mechanical power. These losses are generally categorized as magnetic losses, mechanical losses, copper losses, brush losses, or stray losses, depending on the underlying cause and mechanism. Included in the category of magnetic losses are two types — hysteresis loss and eddy current loss.
