The double Perovskite Bi2FeCrO6 (BFCO), is a variant of the well-known and largely studied perovskite BiFeO3. These perovskites (BFCO) are theoretically and experimentally studied because of their strong ferro-electricity and high magnetic Curie temperature beyond the room temperature. This manuscript presents a theoretical model describing and predicting the double perovskite Bi2FeCrO6 material, in order to simulate its magnetic properties. For this purpose, we use the Monte Carlo method under the Metropolis algorithm. Also, we present the behavior of the magnetizations and the susceptibilities as a function of the temperature as well as different physical parameters, such as the coupling exchange interactions, the crystal field and the external magnetic field. On the other hand, we presented and discussed the ground state phase diagrams by exploring the different stable configurations in different planes of the physical parameters. To complete this study, we established the magnetic hysteresis loops of the double perovskite Bi2FeCrO6 compound, for different physical parameters.
