In this paper, to achieve auto-setting of PI controller gains when mechanical parameters are unknown, two adaptive PI controllers for speed control of electric drives are developed based on model reference adaptive identification. The adaptive linear neuron (ADALINE) neural network is used to interpret the proposed adaptive PI controller. The effect of the low-pass filter used for the feedback speed and the Coulomb friction torque on parameter identification is analysed, and a new motion equation using filtered speed is given. Additionally, a parameter identification method based on unipolar speed reference is provided. The two proposed adaptive PI controllers and the conventional PI controller are compared based on the high-precision digital simulation using MATLAB/Simulink (version R2023a). The simulation results show that both of the two proposed adaptive PI controllers are able to identify mechanical parameters, but the adaptive PI-1 controller outperforms the adaptive PI-2 controller due to its better noise attenuation performance.
