Accurate induction motor mathematical model is the cornerstone of the high-performance vector control of motor. Magnetic saturation can easily affect motor parameters, and the relation of magnetic saturation and the motor parameters is important to the establishment of the motor model. This paper derives a mathematical model of induction motor considering the variation of magnetizing inductance, based on the ideal mathematical model and magnetic saturation characteristic of the motor, from no-load test. Then, the motor model proposed and the ideal model in the MATLAB/Simulink Power System Block are respectively applied to the motor control simulation, and the experimental data are compared to verify the feasibility of the model designed.
