In this article, the anhysteretic Sablik model is identified from measurements and implemented in a finite-element (FE) code. The model takes into account the effect of the plastic deformation through the dislocation density, and thus, enables to account for the degradation of the magnetic properties. A new model for magnetostriction is proposed and implemented in the Sablik model. Experimental data are used to identify the parameters of both Sablik model and proposed magnetostriction. Furthermore, the mechanical punching process of an electrical steel sheet is simulated in view of evaluating the plastic strain distribution near the punched edge. Based on the Sablik model and the simulated plastic strain, FE simulations are carried out on a steel sheet and a cage induction machine. The effect of the punching process on the distribution of magnetic-flux density and the magnetization current is analyzed.
