This paper presents a method for simultaneous rotor speed and rotor resistance estimation of an induction motor in an indirect rotor field oriented control system. This method is based on model reference adaptive system approach using only stator currents and voltages measurement. Finally the feasibility of the scheme is verified by simulation
