A rotor flux error-based approach for correcting the rotor time constant estimation used in the slip frequency calculator of indirect field oriented controller is presented in this paper. The controller was derived from the d-q induction machine model. Slip frequency gain is dependent on the machine parameter errors. And parameter errors result in rotor flux error. Thus, estimated rotor flux is compared to commanded rotor flux. The error between them is used for the estimation of rotor time constant. Simulation results which demonstrate the performance of this approach are presented.
