In this paper, the authors are interested on the field-oriented control with variable gain PI (VPGI) and fuzzy logic regulators of doubly fed Induction Motor (DFIM) fed by two PWM inverters with separate DC bus link. By introducing a new approach for decoupling the motor’s currents in a rotating (d-q) frame, based on the state space input-output decoupling method, we obtain the same transfer function (1/s) for all four decoupled currents. Thereafter and in order to improve the performances of the machine’s control, the VPGI and fuzzy logic controllers with seven subsets were used for the regulation speed. The Results obtained in Matlab/Simulink environment show well the effectiveness of the technique employed for the decoupling and the speed regulation of the machine.
