This paper proposes a novel adaptation mechanism to replace the classical PI controller used in model reference adaptive speed estimation schemes which are based on rotor flux. The proposed adaptation mechanism is based on a fuzzy logic strategy. A detailed experimental comparison between the new and conventional schemes is carried out in both open and closed loop sensorless modes of operation when a vector control drive is working at very low speed. Superior performance has been obtained using the new fuzzy logic adaptation mechanism in both modes of operations.
