Dr. Raúl Igmar Gregor Recalde was born in Asunción, Paraguay, in 1979. He received his bachelor’s degree in electronic engineering from the Catholic University of Asunción, Paraguay, in 2005. He received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electronics, signal processing, and communications from the Higher Technical School of Engineering (ETSI), University of Seville, Spain, in 2008 and 2010, respectively. Since March 2010, Dr. Gregor has been Head of the Laboratory of Power and Control Systems (LSPyC) of the Engineering Faculty of the National University of Asuncion (FIUNA), Paraguay. Dr. Gregor has authored or coauthored about 40 technical papers in the field of power electronics and control systems, six of which have been published in high-impact journals. He obtained the Best Paper Award from the IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics, Industrial Electronics Society, in 2010, and the Best Paper Award from the IET Electric Power Applications, in 2012. His research interests include multiphase drives, advanced control of power converter topologies, quality of electrical power, renewable energy, modeling, simulation, optimization and control of power systems, smart metering and smart grids, and predictive control.

AC motors play a major role in modern industrial applications. Squirrel-cage induction motors (SCIMs) are probably the most frequently used when compared to other AC motors because of their low cost, ruggedness, and low maintenance. The material presented in this book is organized into four sections, covering the applications and structural properties of induction motors (IMs), fault detection and diagnostics, control strategies, and the more recently developed topology based on the multiphase (more than three phases) 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.
