Induction motor can be single phase or three phase. So, let’s get started.

## Step 1

##### Get the following data

- Rating of the motor in kW
- Operating Voltage
- Power Factor
- Efficiency of the motor

You’ll get all the above data on nameplate of the motor.

If power factor is not known you can assume it as Unity.

## Step 2

##### Put the values in following formula

For 3 phase motors

For 1 phase motors

You can put the values obtained in step 1 in relevant formula given above and calculate the current of induction motor!
