This paper concerns the study of a direct torque control based on fuzzy logic type-2 for the speed regulation of a doubly star Induction Machine fed by voltage source inverter. This command has become one of the high performance control strategies for AC machine to supply a very rapid torque and flux control. The proposed technique consists to change the proportional and integral controllers by type-2 fuzzy logic controller. The performance of the scheme in different operating conditions is studied. Particular interest is given to the robustness of the fuzzy logic based control. Furthermore, the simulation results illustrate the efficiency and robustness of the type-2 fuzzy logic controller.
