This paper presents an artificial-neural-network-based direct-self-control (ANN-DSC) scheme for an inverter-fed three-phase induction motor. In order to cope with the complex calculations required in direct self control (DSC), the proposed artificial-neural-network (ANN) system employs the individual training strategy with fixed-weight and supervised models. A computer simulation program is developed using Matlab/Simulink together with the Neural Network Toolbox. The simulated results obtained demonstrate the feasibility of ANN-DSC. Compared with the classical digital-signal-processor-based DSC, the proposed ANN-based scheme incurs much shorter execution times and, hence, the errors caused by control time delays are minimized.
