This paper presents a rule-based acceleration control scheme that aims to give an inverter-fed induction motor excellent dynamic performance. In every time interval of the control process, the acceleration increments produced by two different voltage vectors are compared, yielding one optimum stator voltage vector which is selected and retained. The online inference control is built using a rule-based system and some heuristic knowledge about the relationship between the motor voltage and acceleration. Because evaluation of integrals is not required and the motor parameters are not involved, the new controller has no accumulation error due to the integrals as in the conventional vector control schemes and the same controller can be used for different motors without modification.
