Classical direct torque control (DTC) has advantage in absence of coordinate transform and voltage modulator block. However, it may have disadvantage in controlling electromagnetic torque. DTC produces high ripple in electromagnetic torque as it is not directly controlled. High torque ripple causes vibrations to the motor which may lead to component lose, bearing failure or resonance. Thus, Fuzzy Logic controller is applied to reduce electromagnetic torque ripple. This paper presents the simulation analysis of Fuzzy Logic Direct Torque Controller (FLDTC) of induction machine drives. However, only the design of the controller using built in DTC induction motor drive model of Simulink AC4 will be discussed in this paper. Using FLDTC, the resulting electromagnetic torque from produced less ripple than classical DTC.
