This Project simulates an Induction Motor. It will be helpful for the performer in the practical, observation of the Induction Motor in the lab, as the design motor will be the simulation of the actual motor used for the practical and experiment. The Factors such as direction of magnetic field, magnetic field density, number of windings, heat dissipation, temperature gradient, current flow, etc. which are not visible for the performer but actually plays a very important role for the performance and the efficiency of the Induction Motor will be seen digitally, graphically with the help of simulation on the platform of ANSYS software. The design and calculation of various parameters of the induction motor are done to obtain a simulation which will be approximate to that of the induction motor used for the practical purposes. This will not only increase the interest of the performer but also the understandability of the practical will be more convenient as the performer will be able to gain knowledge about various parameter which were practically impossible to view.
