High performance motor drives require high accuracy, fast response, wide range of control, robustness and immunity from the effect of parameter variations. Three phase motors have a complex and highly nonlinear mathematical model associated with interactive parameters. This makes designing a conventional controller for such a system is a hard task. Researchers are paying more attention to fuzzy logic controllers (FLCs) since they can be employed to control complex or nonlinear systems even without knowing their mathematical model. The main task of this paper is to design and implement an FLC for indirect field orientated control of a three phase induction motor drive. The proposed controller is a proportional-derivative (PD) FLC. It uses the speed and its derivative as input and the electromagnetic torque as output. The input and output are coupled with simple linguistic if-then rules. The spread of each input and output is adjusted using a gain block to achieve the best performance in a trial-and-error process. Also, an incremental counter is attached to the output of the controller to yield the desired electromagnetic torque. The design was implemented and tested using MATLAB/SIMULINK. Finally, the simulation results and figures were presented.
