The speed of ultrasonic motor of piezo-electric type is usually measured using mechanical sensors such as pulse encoders. However, these sensors are costly and bulky. In this paper, a numerical speed estimation approach of a piezo-electric motor (PEM) is implemented using multilayer perception neural network (MLP-NN). The proposed model evaluates rotational speed and load torque based on the amplitude and driving frequency of the terminal voltage, considering the temperature variation. The estimated speed is employed to enhance the performance of the adaptivefuzzy based speed control system. The model is validated and examined to achieve a minimized relative error in speed estimation approaches.
