# Difference between Numerical calculating and FEA almost %10 error, Why?

Hello,
I have a problem about flux density. If I use FEA programs (maxwell 2d) , I find 1.55-1.61 tesla at the stator yoke.
But if I use general formulas of total flux, which is E=4.44xfxɸxNxkdxkt, i find 1.71 tesla at the stator yoke.
This is why? All the other FEA result parameters phase current, torque, speed are confirmed with experiments. But yoke flux is not correct if I calculate the flux density with numerically.
We have motor, and motor specifications are:
Motor type: 3 phase squirrel cage induction motor, delta connection
40 turn for each phase
Frequency :50 Hz
Winding factor : 0.955
Voltage :383 Volt
I am calculating total flux and flux density as below.
Total flux = 383/(0.955x222x40)
= 0.0452 tesla
Stator length : 480 mm
Stator yoke width :27.4 mm
Flux density at yoke = 0.0452/(2x480x27.4x10^6)
= 1.717 tesla
As you see flux density is 1.717 tesla but FEA programs says 1.55- 1.61 tesla
