This paper describes the modelling and control system of a wind turbine, using a doubly fed induction generator. This configuration makes the wind turbine suitable for variable speed wind energy application. The power captured by the wind turbine is converted into electrical power by the induction generator, and it is transmitted to the grid by the stator and the rotor windings. The control system generates voltage command signals for rotor converter and grid converter, respectively, in order to control the power of the wind turbine. Reactive power exchanged with the network through the converters is set to 0 VAr. The control strategy has been developed using MATLAB/Simulink. The simulation results are presented and discussed in the conclusions.
