Emotional learning is one kind of learning strategies depends on emotional estimations that assess the impact of external stimuli on the ability of the system to function effectively in the short term and to maintain its long-term survival prospects. The controller which is based on the emotional dealing trick in the brain is called BELBIC. The intelligent control is inspired by the limbic system of the mammalian brain. In this paper Matlab/Simulink, the simulation model of the complete system is built to control the speed and torque of the machine. In a speed loop, BELBIC is proposed as a speed controller in this paper. In the BLDC drive system Speed and torque performance of the machine is enhanced by the BELBIC controller compared to conventional PI controller with minimum processing time.
