This paper deals with a comparative study of circle criterion based nonlinear observer and H observer for induction motor (IM) drive. The  advantage of the circle criterion approach for nonlinear observer design is that it directly handles the nonlinearities of the system with less restriction  conditions in contrast of the other methods which attempt to eliminate them. However the H observer guaranteed the stability taking into account disturbance and noise attenuation. Linear matrix inequality (LMI) optimization approach is used to compute the gains matrices for the two observers. The simulation results show the superiority of H observer in the sense that it can achieve convergence to the true state, despite the nonlinearity of model and the presence of disturbance.
