Three-phase induction motors are broadly utilized as a part of ventures and in residential purposes due its techno-financial points of interest. The issues involved in the design of three-phase induction motors are that the motors which are designed at rated voltage, however, working under the rated voltages specific in the provincial zones far from the utility Centers are highlighted. Such sorts of motors when work under the evaluated voltage cause more copper losses, derating, throbbing torque, and wastefulness. The aim of this paper is to break down the misfortunes and discover the optimized parameters to enhance the execution of the motors working on appraised to under evaluated voltages. The new designed parameters are compared with the standard one and salient features are talked about by utilizing MATLAB and JMAG Express.
