High quantities and a demand on low costs in automotive drives result in new production methods of electrical machines. Besides, the electric drive train efficiency is improved to offer long ranges. Referring to this relationship the loss models of electrical machines are improved more and more. Focusing on iron losses, remarkable influences on the loss characteristics are attributed to the manufacturing processes. In this publication, a new approach of measuring the losses of a single stator tooth of an electrical machine considering motor-like flux conditions is introduced. Derivation of motor-like flux conditions is described, transfer to the test bench is defined and measurements are shown - concluding with a comparison of simulation and measurement as well as the identified tooth losses of the investigated machine. This gives the possibility to improve iron loss models in case of additional losses due to manufacturing influences.
