This paper describes a MATLAB/Simulink realization of the induction motor speed control method by controlling the voltage applied to the stator winding using the three phase AC voltage controller.
An attractive approach of RL model of induction motor is proposed. The proposed simulation model is checked by experimental work. Torque-speed characteristics are obtained for different values of firing angle to demonstrate its effect on the stability region and the maximum torque value.
