In this paper, a new behavioral modeling approach for magneto-static hysteresis is presented. Many accurate models are currently available, but none of them seems to be able to correctly reproduce all the possible B - H paths with low computational cost. By contrast, the approach proposed in this paper is based on simple functions, which do not require calculus to be involved, thus assuring a very good efficiency in the algorithm. In addition, the proposed method enables initial magnetization curves, symmetric loops, minor loops, normal curves, and reversal curves of any order to be reproduced, as demonstrated through the pertinent results provided in this paper. A model example based on the proposed modeling technique is also introduced and used as inductor core, in order to simulate an LR series circuit. Finally, the model ability to emulate hysteretic inductors is proved by the satisfactory agreement achieved when comparing the measured and simulated results.
