Abstract: This work presents the design of intelligent controller for the speed control of a brushless DC motor under uncertainty in motor parameters. The Interval Type 2 Fuzzy Logic (IT2FL) controller has been proposed and designed to achieve the speed control specifications. A comparative study is conducted between IT2FL and PID controllers in terms of tracking performance and robustness characteristics. The effectiveness of both controller structures is verified through simulation within a MATLAB/Simulink environment. The simulated results showed that the IT2FL controller is more efficient than the PID counterpart in terms of tracking and robustness.
Keywords: Brushless DC motor, IT2FL controller, PID controller.
