Due to the nonlinearity of IMs (Induction Motors), design optimization of these motors, using simple optimization methods, are not applicable, and modified methods are necessary. IMs have many different characteristics that must be optimized. In this paper, using weighting method, multi-objective design optimization of IM reduced to a new objective function that can be optimized simply using FE (Finite Element) and a simple optimization method. IM characteristics are depending on many

So suitable weights apply to these parameters and using an objective function for design optimization, an optimized motor is designed. Outputs of design optimization compare with a real motor (General Electric Co. motor) characteristics.
