    This paper presents an energy efficiency analysis of a 37 kW standard squirrel-cage induction motor under sinusoidal and non-sinusoidal supply. The motor losses are analyzed using the conventional IEC loss segregation method and also numerically modeled using finite element simulations. The measured and simulated loss components are compared with three different modulation methods. The overall simulated losses are in good agreement with the measured ones, but there exist differences in the loss components.
