    Abstract: A grain-oriented electrical steel sheet for a stacked transformer core. The steel sheet having a sheet thickness t, where t and an iron loss deterioration ratio obtained by subjecting the steel sheet under elliptic magnetization satisfy the following relations: (i) when t 0.20 mm, the iron loss deterioration ratio is 85% or less; (ii) when 0.20 mm<t<0.27 mm, the iron loss deterioration ratio is 80% or less; and (iii) when 0.27 mm?t, the iron loss deterioration ratio is 75% or less. The iron loss deterioration ratio is calculated from ((WA?WB)/WB)×100, where WA is iron loss under 50 Hz elliptic magnetization of 1.7 T in a rolling direction and 1.0 T in a direction orthogonal to the rolling direction, and WB is iron loss under 50 Hz alternating magnetization of 1.7 T in the rolling direction.
