The experimental determination of the iron losses created in a localized zone of an electric machine is a difficult operation. We try to verify and to valid by local thermal measurements the sum of local iron losses. To realize our verification, we determine the optimal measurement conditions by calculation and simulation before the realization of a prototype specially designed for this operation. This structure represents a part of an electric machine, with emphasis on inhomogeneous flux distribution areas. This device permits to obtain an experimental temperature mapping which is compared to the calculated temperature distribution obtained by finite elements modelling.
