The well-known problem of parametric sensitivity of a field oriented controlled induction motor drive is considered. The analytical method is offered for parametric sensitivity investigation. Using the results obtained with this method and results obtained by the mathematical models, conclusions are drawn and recommendations for the parametric sensitivity reduction are made. The effective method for the identification of IM parameters at a standstill is proposed. The optimal structures of Artificial Neural Networks are proposed for the flux identification in the FOC drive in which the parametric disturbances occure.
