A method for measurement of frequency dependent electromagnetic core loss of a permanent magnet generator is presented. Core loss of a PM generator is measured at electrical frequencies ranging from 4 to 14 Hz. Core loss in the same interval is simulated using the finite element method and frequency domain loss separation. The specific loss is both extrapolated from specific loss at 50 Hz and measured directly at 4, 8, 12 and 16 Hz. Core loss simulations based on extrapolated specific loss are 38–53% smaller than measured loss. Core loss simulations based on specific loss measured at 4, 8, 12 and 16 Hz are 19–23% smaller than measured loss.
