AB - Many industry applications required the use of the induction motors. In such envirenement the electrical machines are facing of many stressed operating conditions. One of the critical creteria which decide the choice of the induction motor is the thermal behaviour under different mode operation. In this paper a study of the thermal behavior of an induction motor is presented. In order to predict the temperature in the different machine components, a model based on the lumped parameter thermal network has been developed. The geometry of the machine and the thermal properties of its various components are used to express the developed model. The joule and the iron losses are considering as the inputs. The proposed model is implemented and tested using MATLAB software. It is a simple model which could predict rapidly the different temperatures.Keywords: Induction motor, Thermal analysis, Lumped parameters thermal network, Modeling, Heat sources
