Electrical Steel, also known as silicon steel or transformer steel, is a special cold-rolled steel specifically designed for use in power and electronic equipment. It has special magnetic properties, making it outstanding in electromagnetic applications. The manufacturing and processing process of electrical steel is carefully designed to reduce eddy current losses and hysteresis losses under alternating magnetic fields, thereby improving energy conversion efficiency.

Electrical steel is usually made of low-carbon steel or carbon steel, with a certain proportion of silicon added, usually between 2% and 4.5%. This silicon content endows electrical steel with unique magnetic conductivity, making it excellent in electromagnetic applications. Electrical steel is usually produced in the form of thin strips or sheets to reduce energy loss in high-frequency applications.
