A. It is shown in the following formula as a ratio of the loss coefficient to the initial permeability.


  • μ" : Imaginary component of the complex magnetic permeability
  • μ' : Real component of the complex magnetic permeability

Reference: The following formula applies when the gap in the magnetic circuit is small.
