An adaptive model following speed controller for induction motor drives is proposed and successfully implemented. This adaptive controller is easy to be implemented, since for the controlled plant, only the output signal is needed to feedback. In order to choose a proper reference model, which possesses the desired drive dynamic behavior, a two-degree-of-freedom (2-DOF) controller is designed based on a systematic procedure according to the prescribed drive specifications. The reference model of the adaptive system is chosen as the transfer function of the controlled drive system by the 2-DOF controller in the nominal case. An adaptation signal is augmented to let the prescribed specifications be maintained under wide operating conditions.
