Magnetostriction in nonoriented (NO) electrical steel is a possible source of vibration and acoustic noise in electrical machines. The anisotropy of the magnetostriction of NO steel can be far greater than that of its specific power loss which is often quoted. Also magnetostriction under rotational magnetization can be much higher than under alternating magnetization. This paper shows the relevance of magnetostrictive anisotropy to the rotational magnetostriction of a NO steel. An investigation of the effect of anisotropy in magnetostriction was carried out, followed by rotational magnetostriction measurements. A model based on an analogy of mechanical elasticity was used to describe the effect of magnetostrictive anisotropy on the rotational magnetostriction. Results show that a high value in rotational magnetostriction is mainly driven by its high magnetostriction in the transverse direction. The phenomenon is shown to be a source of asymmetrical deformation in the back iron of electrical machine cores where rotational flux predominates.
