Contrary to the claims made in the comments to our paper, the passivity-based controller developed for induction motors has Already been tested on the same demanding trajectories used for the input-output linearization controller. The experimental results show that the passivity-based controller provides closer tracking of the same mechanical trajectory, when compared with the input-output linearization controller.
