The problem of controlling load perturbed induction motors is tackled by means of an observer based robust discrete-time control. In this scheme, model uncertainties and external disturbances are included in a general additive disturbance input which is to be on-line estimated and subsequently rejected via the controller actions. The observer carries out the disturbance estimation, thus reducing the complexity of the controller design. The controller efficiency is tested via some numerical simulations, performing a trajectory tracking task under severe load variations.
