In this paper, applying field orientation based on particle swarm optimization (PSO) controls the speed of two-asymmetrical-winding induction motor. The maximum efficiency of the motor is obtained by the evaluation of optimal rotor flux at any operating point. In addition, the electromagnetic torque is also improved while maintaining a fast dynamic response. In this research, a novel approach is used to evaluate the optimal rotor flux level. This approach is based on PSO. This research presents two speed control strategies. These are field-oriented controller (FOC) and FOC based on PSO. The strategies are implemented mathematically and experimentally. The simulation and experimental results have demonstrated that the FOC based on PSO method saves more energy than the conventional FOC method.
