Through this paper issue of on-line detection of short winding fault in three-phase induction motors is presented, and a technique, based on the computer-aided monitoring of the stator current Park’s Vector, is proposed. The park's vector model is realized by employing Virtual instrumentation. The Virtual Instrumentation is acquired by programming in Lab-view software. Laboratory analysis was performed on a 0.5 hp three phase induction motor. The motor was originally evaluated under optimum circumstances and Park's vector model was sketched. Subsequently, the short winding fault is reproduced in the motor. The motor was scrutinized again under erroneous condition and Park's vector model was sketched. Both plots were then scrutinized. It is ascertained that current park's vector pattern of healthy motor was perfect circle meanwhile current park's vector pattern under faulty condition was elliptical in shape. Experimental conclusion, derived by employing a distinct fault producing test rig, illustrate the efficiency of the suggested modus operandi, for determining the presence of short winding fault in running three-phase induction machines.
