The numerical computation of magnetization processes in moving and rotating assemblies requires the usage of vector hysteresis models. A commonly used model is the so-called Mayergoyz vector Preisach model, which applies the scalar Preisach model into multiple angles of the halfspace. The usage of several scalar models, which are optionally weighted differently, enables the description of isotropic as well as anisotropic materials. The flexibility is achieved, however, at the cost of multiple scalar model evaluations. For solely isotropic materials, two vector Preisach models, based on an extra rotational operator, might offer a lightweight alternative in terms of evaluation cost. The study aims at comparing the three mentioned models with respect to computational efficiency and practical applicability.
The three mentioned vector Preisach models are compared with respect to their computational costs and their representation of magnetic polarization curves measured by a vector vibrating sample magnetometer.
The results prove the applicability of all three models to practical scenarios and show the higher efficiency of the vector models based on rotational operators in terms of computational time.
Although the two vector Preisach models, based on an extra rotational operator, have been proposed in 2012 and 2015, their practical application and inversion has not been tested yet. This paper not only shows the usability of these particular vector Preisach models but also proves the efficiency of a special stageless evaluation approach that was proposed in a former contribution.

This paper aims to present a novel stageless evaluation scheme for a vector Preisach model that exploits rotational operators for the description of vector hysteresis. It is meant to resolve the discretizational errors that arise during the application of the standard matrix-based implementation of Preisach-based models.
The newly developed evaluation uses a nested-list data structure. Together with an adapted form of the Everett function, it allows to represent both the additional rotational operator and the switching operator of the standard scalar Preisach model in a stageless fashion, i.e. without introducing discretization errors. Additionally, presented updating and simplification rules ensure the computational efficiency of the scheme.
A comparison between the stageless evaluation scheme and the commonly used matrix approach reveals not only an improvement in accuracy up to machine precision but, furthermore, a reduction of computational resources.
The presented evaluation scheme is especially designed for a vector Preisach model, which is based on an additional rotational operator. A direct application to other vector Preisach models that do not rely on rotational operators is not intended. Nevertheless, the presented methodology allows an easy adaption to similar vector Preisach schemes that use modified setting rules for the rotational operator and/or the switching operator.
Prior to this contribution, the vector Preisach model based on rotational operators could only be evaluated using a matrix-based approach that works with discretized forms of rotational and switching operator. The presented evaluation scheme offers reduced computational cost at much higher accuracy. Therefore, it is of great interest for all users of the mentioned or similar vector Preisach models.
