The abilities of a simplified multiscale and a Helmholtz energy HE models models from the literature to predict the multiaxial stress dependent magnetic hysteresis behavior of electrical steel sheets are analyzed. The identification of the models is performed using only uniaxial magneto-mechanical measurements. Reasonable accuracy between the measurements and the modeled results is obtained. With this paper, the applicability of the HE-based model for predicting the multiaxial magneto-mechanical behavior of electrical steel sheets is verified for the first time. The differences between the studied models and possible modifications to increase the accuracy of them are discussed. Some brief guidelines for the applications are given.
