By using the direct torque control (DTC), robust response in ac drives can be produced. Ripples of currents, torque and flux are oberved in steady state. space vector modulation (SVM) applied in DTC and used for a sensorless induction motor (IM) with fuzzy sliding mode speed controller (FSMSC) is studied in this paper. This control can minimize the torque, flux, current and speed pulsations in steady state. To estimate the rotor speed and stator flux the model reference adaptive system (MRAS) is used that is designed from identified voltages and currents. The FSMSC is used to enhance the efficiency and the robustness of the presented system. The DTC transient advantage are maintained, while better quality steady-state performance is produced in sensorless implementation for a wide speed range. The drive system performances have been checked by using Matlab Simultaion, and successful results have been obtained. It is deduced that the proposed control system produces better results than the classical DTC.
