starting from the geometrical and electrical data generally avail-

able after an electromagnetic design. The main aim of this paper

is to help the readers pass from the theoretical analysis to the

numerical code suitable to be included in its own design soft-

ware. For this reason, the step-by-step algorithms are included

in this paper. Some of the methods are based on well-known

approaches while the other ones are original. For the latter ones,

a complete discussion of the theoretical analysis is reported and

discussed. The first part deals with the stator- and rotor-resistance Fig. 1. Induction-motor single-phase equivalent circuit.
