To circumvent the high computational costs of modelling each lamination to compute the eddy current distribution in three dimensions in conducting laminations, a simple method has been developed. The laminar nature of the eddy currents due to the magnetic leakage field has been considered by applying an anisotropic conductivity with zero or very low value in the direction normal to the laminations. This yields an overall field distribution serving as basis. In a second step, the much smaller eddy current loops caused by the main magnetic flux parallel to the laminations have been taken into consideration by a one‐dimensional analytical model. Nonlinearity is neglected.
