Wind energy generation has attracted great interests in recent years. Doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG) for wind turbines (WTs) are largely deployed, because variable-speed WTs have many advantages over fixed-speed generation such as increased energy capture, operation at maximum power point, improved efficiency and power quality. This paper presents the operation and vector control of a DFIG system, where the stator is connected directly to a stiff grid and the rotor is connected to the grid through bidirectional back-to-back AC–DC–AC converter. The basic operational characteristics, mathematical model of the aerodynamic system and vector control technique, which is used to obtain decoupled control of powers, are investigated using the software Matlab/Simulink.


Keywords: Wind turbine, doubly-fed induction generator, active and reactive power controller.
