This paper presents an excellent speed control scheme for induction motor drives. Phase-locked loop (PLL) techniques based on proportional-integral derivative (PID) feedback of the phase difference is employed to provide extremely accurate speed regulation. The quick-response torque control of an induction motor is used to provide better torque characteristics. In addition, a disturbance is estimated by a disturbance observer and the estimated value is fed back to eliminate the disturbance effect on the motor speed. The proposed system combines the precise speed regulation of PLL technique and the advantage of the quick-response torque control, with the insensitivity to disturbance by the disturbance compensation. A phase-plane analysis is used to evaluate the effects of gain coefficients of PID feedback of phase difference. Experimental results are presented to verify the characteristics of the proposed system.
