This study deals with the performance analysis and implementation of a robust sensorless speed controller. The robustness is guaranteed by the use of the Internal Model Controller (IMC). An intelligent algorithm is evolved to eliminate the mechanical speed. It is based on the Artificial Neural Network (ANN) principle. Verification of the proposed robust sensorless controller is provided by experimental realistic tests on a scalar controlled induction motor drive. Sensorless robust speed control at low speeds and in field weakening region (high speeds) is studied in order to show the robustness of the speed controller under a wide range of load.
