In the paper a comparison between the analytical and numerical method of no-load computation will be made taking into account the initial hypothesis and computational effort face to the concrete obtainable results. It is concluded that the reduced fixed-mesh FEM analysis of the induction motors is very suitable for no-load computation because it relates directly to the well known equivalent circuit parameters. The symmetry of the machine allows for the computation only on a small part of the magnetic circuit so that the time of computation can be reduced even when a relatively fine mesh is used. However, for the optimal design of the motor it appears that analytical methods are very suitable owing to the simplicity and accuracy of the design.
