In the present scenario, for high performance industrial, DC machines are used. But with the help of Power Electronics, the same dynamic performance can be obtained for induction motor using vector controlled techniques. An advanced control strategy in the field of adjustable speed drives is the Indirect vector control of an Induction motor. The Indirect vector control strategy is simple with one PI controller. The tuned parameter values obtained by several methods may not perform satisfactorily for variable drive operating condition. In this paper, the Genetic Algorithm is used to optimize the gains of PI controller to enhance the performance of Induction motor drive.
