Field oriented control of induction machine (IM) drives is one of a great method used in industrial applications. However, the performance of this drive is limited by parameter disturbances. In order to improve induction machine speed control, a self tuning fuzzy logic controller tuned by a fuzzy logic adapter is proposed. The interest of this controller is its ability to adjust the gains of the classical PI changing with parameters of the machine. This paper presents comparison of three controllers: self tuning fuzzy logic controller, fuzzy logic controller, conventional PI. Simulations results showed the robustness and effectiveness of the proposed controller.
