### Overview

MotorAnalysis-IM is a free software for design and analysis of induction motors and generators. MotorAnalysis-IM is based on automated finite element analysis (FEA) simulations and establishes a complete set of tools for design and analysis of induction machines. MotorAnalysis-IM is available as a MALTAB-based application or as a standalone program working without MATLAB.

### Features
