This manuscript presents the details about the novel controller using wavelet transform and fuzzy logic tuning for speed control of an induction motor drive. The conventional proportional-integral (PI) speed controller in an indirect vector control of induction motor drive has been replaced by the proposed controller for an improved transient and steady state performances. The discrete wavelet transform has been used to decompose the error speed into different frequency components and the fuzzy logic is used to generate the scaling gains of the wavelet controller. The complete model of the proposed controller along with an induction motor drive incorporating the proposed controller has been developed in numerical simulation software using Matlab/Simulink environment and a set of results are provided within this paper in comparison to the conventional controller scheme. © 2015 IEEE.
