This paper proposes a simple but robust self-tuning fuzzy logic controller for the speed regulation of a dual star induction machine based on indirect field oriented control. For feed the two star of this machine, two voltage source inverters based on sinus-triangular pulse-width modulation techniques are introduced. The simulation results show the robustness and good performance of the proposed controller.
