Industries of all kinds use electrical machines and they also form the integral part of any engineering system. Induction motors are widely used in industrial and domestic applications. There are various faults that occur in an induction motor, like stator inter-turn fault, bearing fault and eccentricity fault. Out of these faults, the rotor bearing fault is very specific in squirrel cage induction machines. This paper presents the design and modelling of a three phase squirrel cage induction motor using the CAD package called “ANSYS® Maxwell 2D” and its analysis under two states of operation: healthy mode of operation and motor operation under the presence of a bearing fault. © Research India Publications.
