Abstract

Generalised machine theory and the method of equivalent circuits are well-known and powerful techniques for the analysis of induction motors in the transient and steady-states respectively. The accuracy of both methods, however, is limited by the accuracy with which the model parameters are known at the desired operating point and this may present some difficulties. An analysis based on the finite-element method has the advantage of being capable of modelling the stator and rotor geometry to any desired accuracy as well as including the effects of iron saturation in a more realistic manner.
