This book is organized into four sections, covering the
applications and structural properties of induction motors, fault detection and
diagnostics, control strategies, and the more recently developed topology based
on the multiphase induction motors. This material should be of specific interest
to engineers and researchers who are engaged in the modeling, design, and
implementation of control algorithms applied to induction motors and, more
generally, to readers broadly interested in nonlinear control, health condition
monitoring, and fault diagnosis.
