    I would like to know how I can do a computer simulation of induction motors or is there anybody who can help me to do that.

    I am a materials engineer and I happened to develop a new electrical steels (core materials for induction motors), which shows better magnetic properties than the commercially available ES's. Core loss is W15/50 = 3.0W/kg. Also, magnetic induction is B50 = 1.8T. This means about 0.1T higher magnetic induction with similar core loss value.

    Although I measured core loss and B-H curve, I still wonder how good my material is in terms of power factor, efficiency,and etc. in induction motors.

    According to my calculation, power factor can be enhanced more that 5% due to easy magnetization and efficiency will go up, too. But it is based on my analytical calculation.

    I do not know much about motors because I am not a electrical engineer. I mean, I don't know design, dimension, how much induction I should use and etc..

    So, what should I do? Please help me.

    Haven't had any experience in that, but here's a paper describing the use of Matlab for simulating motors. Perhaps that will help.
