Course Description
The course will provide the main techniques on
artificial intelligent control and its applications.
After the course, students are able to apply the
intelligent control techniques to deal with typical
problems of various motor drives, from DC to
SRM drives.

• Control and Estimation: a dual problem
• Fuzzy Logic Control
• Fuzzy Logic Estimation
• Artificial Neural Network
• Artificial Genetic Algorithms
• DC Motor Drives: Fuzzy logic control of speed
• Control and Estimation of Induction Motor Drives:
– Fuzzy logic control of speed
– Fuzzy Logic Model Reference Adaptive
