This article presents a method of calculating an axial flux signal and how to use this signal to determine an electromagnetic torque for a squirrel cage induction motor in a steady state. Numerical analyses were performed using a two-dimensional field-circuit model for the squirrel cage induction motor. Most of analyses were performed for a symmetric motor and to estimate a magnitude of the electromagnetic torque, an algorithm was developed. The electromagnetic torque estimation method proposed

The analysis shows that it is possible for the induction motor to determine a load torque based on the axial flux measurement using a measuring coil applied to the motor, for example from the fan side.
