I will be working this summer on a paper about applying AI algorithms in control theory, i think induction motor control is a very interesting topic and i have found some papers about applying indirect field oriented control using neural networks but they are quite old (late nineties)
The question is :
1-Is there any need to have a better method to control IM rather than FOC? Or simply what are the problems in controlling an induction motor?
2-another topic i found interesting, Is it important to have a POSITION control for an induction motor? I mean like we need to have large expensive steppers or servos to have accurate position control...Would it be better if IM can serve in such a field?
and thanks :)
