A novel structure of nonlinear integral backstepping control has been proposed for induction motors. We can see clearly that the structure of the controller generated by the classical version of backstepping is composed of a proportional action, which was added a derivative action on errors. Such a structure makes the system sensitive to measurement noise. The lack of integration means also the appearance of a constant static error, caused mainly by non-zero mean disturbances. The solution to this problem is to design a new version of the backstepping with integral action.
