In the paper is proposed an induction machine model that corresponds to operating conditions at the change of frequency. The applicability of simulation method for the analysis of its operation at the frequencies other than 50 Hz was examined. The operation of the induction machine which control parameter is the frequency of controlled current was particularly analyzed. 

The evaluation of the proposed model was performed using the adapted subprogram in the psbdrive MATLAB Simulink package. For the verification of the results, the method of verified simulation was used, as a part of the method which was derived from the artificial intelligence algorithm. It has been confirmed that by controlling the frequencies and current of the induction machine, the ability to work in overloads can be maintained and this type of control has certain advantages in the frequency regulation of the drive with variable loads.
