This paper presents a laboratory test procedure to determine the parameters of the inverse hysteresis model (IHM) applicable to single-phase toroidal transformer low-frequency modeling. The model parameters are obtained through a fitting procedure of the history-independent IHM of a series of open-circuit experiments and waveform recordings. These experiments can be easily executed during the transformer acceptance testing at the factory laboratory. The performance of the model is verified under various operational conditions, such as sinusoidal excitation, varied frequencies and voltages, and non-sinusoidal excitations. The results show that the model performs very well under all tested conditions giving great confidence that the proposed method can be used for parameter determination.
