In this article, a set of equivalent variational formulations for computing the driving forces for domain switching in ferroelectric materials is presented. It is proven that these formulations allow the free adoption of any couple of mechanical and electric fields as independent variables while obtaining consistent results. In addition, explicit expressions are provided for each formulation which allows for the study of the phase transformation process under different constraints.
