A rule-based fuzzy logic controller (FLC) is developed for TIM speed control in non-linear systems. Speed control applications are tested by conducting simulations under different operating conditions. To achieve reliable TIM operation, the space vector pulse width modulation (SVPWM) scheme is used to generate gate signals for the three-phase, two-level inverter. The SVPWM technique demonstrates excellent performance in TIM speed control. The scalar control (V/f control), which is inexpensive, simple to implement in hardware, and applicable to medium- and high-speed rated TIM applications, is used to control the developed TIM. Results show that the implementation of rule-based fuzzy with V/f control and the SVPWM technique for TIM speed control provides superior performance, which is sufficiently robust and intelligent for real-time applications.
