Viewing induction motor output rpm and torque

+1 vote
I am using the induction motor models from electrical machines library. Though I can see the output signal port, I am not sure how to view it using a scope. Specifically, I need to know when the machine is in generator mode, which I plan to conclude by comparing the rotor speed with the synchronous speed.

you can observe the motor speed in two ways:

1.  use the speed sensor in plecs library mechanical -->rotational-->sensors--> rotational speed sensor

2.  use the "Probe" block in the plecs library to oberve the output speed of the induction motor
