In this paper a discrete adaptive induction position servo is designed and implemented. In the proposed servo system, the dynamic model of the indirect field-oriented induction motor is estimated from the measurements using the stochastic approach. Based on this model, a PI speed controller and a P position controller are designed using pole-placement and root-locus techniques. In order to reduce the effects of machine and load parameter variations on the performance of the indirect field-oriented induction motor servo drive, an adaptive controller is augmented. In which, a reduced reference model, which defines the desired following control performance, is chosen and the adaptive control signal is synthesized. The proposed adaptive controller has the advantages of easy to design and implement. Simulation and experimental results show that good following and regulating control performances are achieved. Moreover, the performances are rather insensitive to the parameter variations.
