An existing bond graph of a squirrel cage induction motor was modified to make the bond graph physically more representative. The intent was to form a one-to-one correspondence between motor components and bond graph elements. Components explicitly represented include the stator coils, the squirrel cage rotor bars, and the magnetic flux routing section. The final bond graph spans electrical, magnetic, and mechanical energy domains, and contains common motor faults. From this bond graph. state equations were extracted and simulations performed. Simulated were the response of healthy motors, and motors with shorted stator coils and broken rotor bars.
