This study presents the direct torque controlled induction motor (IM) drive utilizing a novel extended Kalman filter (EKF) that simultaneously estimates stator stationary axis components of stator currents and stator fluxes in addition to rotor and stator resistances with the assumption of available stator voltages/currents and rotor speed. Thus, it is desired to show that the on-line estimations of rotor and stator resistances are possible by using a single EKF algorithm in the case with speed-sensor. Performances of the proposed EKF are tested under challenging scenarios generated in simulations. The obtained results confirm very satisfying performances of the introduced EKF algorithm and thus the IM drive.
