Losses defined as the difference between input and output power of IM have many components. There is, however, a notable difference between the losses measured under direct load and the ones calculated from the separation of losses methods (in no-load and short-circuit tests). This difference is called stray load losses and they vary from 0.5% to 2.5% of full power; they occur even on motor no-load operation.
