This thesis presents the development and implementation of an integral field oriented intelligent control for an induction motor (IM) drive using Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC), and an Artificial Neural Network (ANN), employing a finite element controller and making use of a Proportional Integral (PI) adaptive controller as well. An analytical model of an induction motor drive has been developed. In order to prove the superiority of the proposed controller, the performance of this controller is compared with conventional PI-based IM drives. The performance of the proposed IM drive is investigated extensively at different operating conditions in simulation. The proposed adaptive PI-based speed controller’s performance is found to be robust and it is a potential candidate for high performance industrial drive applications. The novel work focuses on using a Finite Element Controller map (FECM) to manipulate adaptive controllers for motor control drives. A digital signal processing (DSP) board DS1104 and laboratory induction motor were used to implement the complete vector control scheme. The test results have been compared with simulated results at different dynamic operating conditions. The effectiveness of this control scheme has been evaluated, and it has been found to be more efficient than the conventional PI controller.
