Induction motor especially three phase induction motor plays vital role in the industry due to their advantages over other electrical motors. Therefore, there is a strong demand for their reliable and safe operation. If any fault and failures occur in the motor it can lead to excessive downtimes and generate great losses in terms of revenue and maintenance. Therefore, an early fault detection is needed for the protection of the motor. In the current scenario, the health monitoring of the induction motor are increasing due to its potential to reduce operating costs, enhance the reliability of operation and improve service to the customers. The health monitoring of induction motor is an emerging technology for online detection of incipient faults. The on-line health monitoring involves taking measurements on a machine while it is in operating conditions in order to detect faults with the aim of reducing both unexpected failure and maintenance costs. In the present paper, a comprehensive survey of induction machine faults, diagnostic methods and future aspects in the health monitoring of induction motor has been discussed.
