    This paper proposes the Simulation and Analysis of a 3-Phase
    Induction Motor and a Brushless DC Motor using the MATLAB/Simulink
    environment. In this paper a three-phase squirrel cage induction motor is
    simulated under different load conditions and the characteristic graphs of
    this motor are obtained. Induction motors
    are the most widely used motor drive and thus the results obtained are
    important in understanding and designing the motor for precise command
    and control. In a BLDC motor, the torque characteristic plays an
    important role in the design and analysis of BLDC motor drive systems
    which is used in industries for automated vehicles and collaborative
    robots. Therefore, it is necessary to predict the precise value of torque,
    which is determined by the characteristics obtained as a result of
    simulating back EMF vs time for the BLDC motor addressed in this paper.
    Both these motors are most widely used and find their application in
    various industries such as Automotive industry, Automobile sector,
    Aerospace, Pulp and Paper industry, Medical, consumer, Induction
    Automation Equipment and Instrumentation.
