Abstract—This paper deals with the analysis, modeling, and control of a grid connected doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG) driven by the wind turbine. Recent advancements in size and technology of wind turbines require sophisticated control systems to effectively optimize energy conversion and enhance grid integration. This article investigates the power flow analysis of grid connected Wind Energy Conversion System (WECS) in a highly fluctuating wind environment. The WECS is equipped with a DFIG and a back-to-back converter in the rotor circuit. A control technique is presented for extracting the maximum power from the wind turbine. The grid side converter maintains the DC link voltage and the task of the rotor side converter is to track the maximum power point for the wind turbine. The description for the proposed system is presented with the detailed dynamic modeling equations. Simulation results for different operating conditions are presented.
