Fuzzy logic control technique has been successfully applied to many engineering problems. This paper presents a control method based on fuzzy logic theory for speed regulation of an AC induction motor. The objective is to define the PWM switching waveforms which drive the 3 phase PWM inverter that is used to control the speed of the induction motor. To achieve this, the speed error and its rate of change are used as input signals to the proposed fuzzy controller and the output is used to control the PWM inverter. The effectiveness of the proposed controller is tested by simulation where the controller signals are defined by a set of linguistic labels characterized by their membership functions. Based on the results obtained by the simulation, the proposed controller as in the next stage of this project is going to be further developed and implemented using the Intel MSC196KC 16-bit microcontroller.
