Power Control in a Doubly Fed Induction Machine

Authors: A. Ourici


This paper proposes a direct power control for doubly-fed induction machine for variable speed wind power generation. It provides decoupled regulation of the primary side active and reactive power and it is suitable for both electric energy generation and drive applications. In order to control the power flowing between the stator of the DFIG and the network, a decoupled control of active and reactive power is synthesized using PI controllers.The obtained simulation results show the feasibility and the effectiveness of the suggested method

Keywords: vector control, PWM inverter, doubly fed induction machine, active and reactive power, decoupled power control
