A new project is set-up in tuto_test_SCIM_08 by copy/paste tuto_test_SCIM_01.
The following parameters are modified for variable speed operation:

`Input.Simu.U0 = 600/sqrt(3);`

Input.Simu.type_satmodel= 1;

Input.Simu.Nsatharm = 1;

In the GUI, U0 is in Workflow, type_satmodel and Nsatharm are not yet in the GUI.

The voltage is doubled to increase saturation effects, and the modelling of saturated permeance is activated (**type_satmodel=1**) with only one additional harmonic (**Nsatharm=1**).

The behaviour of the B(H) curve during saturation can be modelled in three different ways:

- by using the special curve specified in the MaterialData folder by “M400-50Asat.txt”, suitable for high H operation (
**Input.type_BHsat=0**) - by using the 4 parameters of an analytical B(H) curve defined in the machine script :
**Input.Magnetics.Bmax_BHsat, Input.Magnetics.mur0_BHsat, Input.Magnetics.a_BHsat, Input.Magnetics.mur1_BHsat**(To set in the machine file, not available in the GUI) - by using the B(H) graphical interface to manually fit the B(H) curve with the 4 parameters of the analytical model

### Result interpretation

The effect of saturation permeance wave can be checked using plot_Per_space :

On can see an additional harmonic of space wavenumber 2p=6, which is going to flatten the airgap flux density distribution with a 3p=9 spatial wavenumber (plot_B_space) :

The new sonogram is given by plot_VS_ASWL_spectrogram

One can notice a new force line close to the slotting harmonic force of wavenumber 2. This saturation line has a wavenumber 4 and a frequency fs(Zr/p+4), it was already identified in the theoretical analysis (eps=2). Here it does not create any resonance, but in some squirrel cage designs this saturation harmonic can generate significant acoustic noise.
