The electromagnetic inspection technology is commonly used to evaluate defects in steel in various power generation plants because of its ability to detect quickly. In this paper, the electromagnetic inspection methods using an ac magnetic field, or a biased ac field are proposed. The behavior of the flux in steel is examined using 3-D FEM that takes into account the initial magnetization curve, hysteresis (minor loop) and eddy currents in order to improve the inspection method.
