A means by which the finite-element method can be used in conjunction with the conventional equivalent circuit model to determine the equivalent circuit components for a three-phase cage induction motor is described. The method uses separate finite-element models for the rotor and the stator, consisting of one slot pitch and one phase band, respectively. The use of minimal models leads to a fast execution time. The method is illustrated by comparing computer predictions of performance with test measurements made on four motors, ranging in size from 4 to 150 kW.<>
