This paper proposes a calculating method of resistance and inductance of end ring of squirrel cage induction motor for 2D finite element analysis. The squirrel cage of induction motor consists of bars and end rings. The resistance and inductance of end ring have an effect on the result of the finite element calaculation. If the end ring were excluded from the analysis, the good result could not be obtained. Therefore, we first simulate an axisymmetric magnetodynamic analysis for the end ring, and then calculate the interbar resistance and the end ring inductance. The calculated values are put into the external circuit of 2D finite element model of the induction motor. The proposed method is verified by comparing the numerical results with the experimental ones.
