This paper presents 2D and 3D homogenization techniques for laminated iron cores in the frequency domain. In 2D, two approaches (analytical and numerical) are compared in terms of complex reluctivity considering tangential magnetic field to laminations. The analytical approach is generalized to 3D problems. The validation performed on homogenized block gives satisfactory results only in case of closed-core or thin air gap open-core. Thus, we have a correct approximation only when the magnetic field is essentially parallel to laminations. In order to remediate the poor approximation of losses due to non parallel magnetic field component and model large air gap devices, we propose an alternative to block homogenization. A validation is done on a laminated open-core inductance.
