Ferromagnetic materials exhibit rate-dependent hysteresis, creep and constitutive nonlinearities due to their inherent domain structure. For model-based control applications, these non-linear attributes must be incorporated in a models in a manner that facilitates model calibration and real-time control implementation. In this paper, we present a homogenized energy model for these materials. This is a multiscale framework that quantifies energy at the domain level and then employs stochastic homogenization techniques to provide macroscopic models that are highly efficient to implement. The accuracy of models will be validated using a variety of experimental data.
