In industries, electric motors contribute a major percentage of electrical loads, and by implication, a major portion of the generated electrical energy is consumed by electric motors, and it is therefore vital to ensure that these motors operate with negligible energy loss. In operational environment, many factors can be responsible for a reduction in motor performance. One of the major factors is a regime of voltage unbalance that affects the motor, the load and supply network. Three phase induction motor studies can be carried out using methods such as real load test, finite element analysis, flux linkage-current relations etc. A new model based on phase frame analysis has been developed for easy computation of sequence components. This paper seeks to explore the performance of a 3-phase induction motor operating under unbalance voltage conditions using the phase frame analysis. The results of this study established that there are negative impacts of supply imbalance on the performance of three phase motor.
