Fuzzy Logic Application for Intelligent Control of An Asynchronous Machine

Zineb Mekrini, Seddik Bri


The aim of this article is propose a method to improve the direct torque control and design a Fuzzy Logic based Controller which can take necessary control action to provide the desired torque and flux of an asynchronous machine. It’s widely used in the industrial application areas due to several features such as fast torque response and less dependence on the rotor parameters. The major problem that is usually associated with DTC control is the high torque ripple as it is not directly controlled. The high torque ripple causes vibrations to the motor which may lead to component lose, bearing failure or resonance. The fuzzy logic controller is applied to reduce electromagnetic torque ripple. In this proposed technique, the two hysteresis controllers are replaced by fuzzy logic controllers and a methodology for implementation of a rule based fuzzy logic controller are presented. The simulation by Matlab/Simulink was built which includes induction motor d-q model, inverter model, fuzzy logic switching table and the stator flux and torque estimator. The validity of the proposed method is confirmed by the simulative results of the whole drive system and results are compared with conventional DTC method.
