The subject of the paper is design and analysis of fuzzy Luenberger observer for simultaneous estimation of rotor speed and stator resistance of induction motor drive supplied by a Three-level inverter for operating in a high-performance drives environment. The introducing of fuzzy Luenberger observer in the system helps to achieve a good dynamic response, disturbance rejection and low to plant parameter variations of the A.C drive. The fuzzy Luenberger Observer combine the advantages of both, fuzzy controller and Luenberger observer . In order to verify the performances of the proposed observer and to test behavior of the controlled system, numerical experiments are achieved. To demonstrate the potential and practicality of the presented approache.
