This paper deals with the stability analysis of MRAS current speed estimator in a motoring and regenerating mode. The unstable operating points of the estimator, mainly in a regenerating mode are widely discussed. The expanded version of the estimator MRASCC is proposed to provide its stability in the whole operating range. The new correction coefficients for two analyzed stabilization methods are proposed. Finally, simulation results confirming the theoretical analysis are presented
