Being an integral part of any engineering system, electrical machines are used in all industries. Among all these machines, very common type of machine is induction motors. Motor faults can lead to untimely shutdown of machines and consequently lead to loss of productivity. This can be avoided by the proper detection of fault in the incipient stage itself, which requires a detailed analysis of the fault and clearly understand its effect on the motor. This paper presents a method to analyse the frequently occurring rotor bearing fault on an induction motor. The fault analysis is conducted using two ® parameters: Stator current and voltage by Motor Current Signature Analysis and the motor flux distribution using ANSYS Maxwell 2D.
