The paper deals with the application of fuzzy logic in the current-based model reference adaptive system (CB-MRAS) for sensorless induction motor drives using direct torque control with pulse-width modulation. The stability analysis of the selected observer is described in the first part. Fuzzy logic is used to adjust the parameters of proportional–integral (PI) adaption algorithm of the CB-MRAS observer. The description of a laboratory workplace with an induction motor drive and load system is presented in the third part. Comparisons of conventional PI and fuzzy logic-based adaptation algorithms are shown in the paper. The theoretical assumptions of the sensorless induction motor drive are confirmed by the simulation and experimental results.
