The aims of this paper is to present an accurate internal model rotating of induction machines based on the multi-turns electric circuit magnetically coupled. The multi-turns electric equations expressed in two different coordinate systems, combined with the mechanical equations leads to a differential system which is reduced using the windings connection matrices. The model can be used in unbalanced parameters conditions with Wye or Delta stator windings connection. A three phase induction motor was simulated under normal healthy, stator inter-turns short-circuits and phase breakdown operations.
