Induction motor with indirect field oriented control is preferred for high performance applications due to its excellent dynamic behavior. However, it is sensitive to variations in rotor time constant, especially variation in rotor resistance which needs to be estimated online. Conventionally the model reference adaptive system with fuzzy logic controllers as adaptation is used, which works satisfactorily for one particular operating condition and fails under variable operating condition.

In this paper, the input/output gain and the membership function parameters of the fuzzy system are optimized using genetic algorithm and particle swarm optimization to obtain an optimal designed fuzzy controller for rotor resistance estimation. The system is investigated in MATLAB/Simulink environment. Results shows that the steady state error in estimation of rotor resistance by the proposed controller under stringent operating condition is better with the proposed controller as compared to the conventional trial and error based fuzzy controller.
