In this article a new distinct winding scheme is articulated to utilize three phase induction machines for multifunctional operation. Because of their rugged construction and reduced maintenance induction machines are very popular and well-accepted for agricultural as well as industrial purposes. The proposed winding scheme is used in a three phase induction machine to utilize the machine for multifunctional operation. It can be used as a three-phase induction motor, welding transformer and phase converter. The proposed machine design also works as a single phase induction motor at the same time it works as a three-phase to single phase converter. This new design does not need any kind of special arrangement and can be constructed with small modifications to any standard three-phase induction motor. This modified induction machine is thoroughly tested to determine its efficiency and other parameters and also hardware implementation results are provided in the article, which validate the design and construction.
