In this study, the most vital characteristic properties of induction motor, motor starting, maximum and nominal torque are analyzed for what are affected. For the analysis of torque, L type, T type and IEEE 112 equivalent circuit model is employed. Torque change is investigated with the help of codes developed in MATLAB to be used in electrical machines course. First, the slip-moment characteristic curve of the induction motor is divided into three working zones and it was determined which equivalent circuit model gave the best results in these study zones. Later, such parameters as stator and rotor resistance, stator and rotor reactance, magnetization reactance, core resistance and slip are researched for how torque values are affected from. The obtained values for each of the three equivalent circuit models are given and compared with experimental results. 50 HP squirrel cage induction motor parameters are used in analysis. In the analysis, the most influential parameters on the starting torque are found as rotor resistance and stator and rotor reactance. Change of other parameters’ impact ratio depending upon right proportion and inverse proportion is observed. When nominal torque variations are investigated, again rotor resistance is the most influential parameter and by selecting proper factor effecting rotor resistance during design, the result of acquiring desired rotor resistance is obtained. When the maximum torque variations are examined, it appears that the stator and rotor reactance values are effective. Starting, maximum and nominal torque expressions change with square of voltage alters the effect on them a lot. Therefore, triangle or star connection importance arises during machine design.
