In this work, Genetic Algorithm (GA) has been used as an optimization technique to minimise the losses in an induction machine. It was been observed that the GAs locate the global optimum region faster than the conventional direct search optimization techniques. In this paper, the concept of GA was used as an optimization technique to minimize the losses in an electric machine thereby improving on the efficiency. The result shows an improvement in the machine’s efficiency from 90.3% to 94.3%.
