Nowadays study of input voltage quality on induction motors behaviour has become a controversial subject due to the wide application of these motors in the industry. The impact of grid voltage fluctuations on the performance of induction motors can be included in this area. The majority of papers devoted to the influence of voltage fluctuations on the induction motors are focusing only on the solving of d-q state equations or steady state equivalent circuit analysis. In this paper, a new approach to this issue is investigated by field analysis which studies the effects of voltage fluctuations on the magnetic fluxes of induction motors. New analytical expressions to approximate the airgap flux density and the torque under voltage fluctuation conditions are presented. These characteristics are also calculated directly by the finite-element method considering the magnetic saturation and the harmonic fields. Finally, experimental results on a typical induction motor are employed to validate the accuracy of analytical and simulation results.
