In recent years, industrial developments have made it necessary to control Induction motors, used in both industrial and household applications, over a wide range of speeds. Thanks to vector-control algorithms, in order to control the torque in high-performance operations over wide-ranging speeds, the equivalent circuit parameters of the induction motor have to be known precisely.
