This paper presents the active and reactive powers control of a doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) connected to the grid utility and driven by a wind turbine, this machine allowing a large speed variation and so a large range of wind is achieved. Traditionally vector control is introduced to the DFIG control strategies, which decouples DFIG active and reactive powers, and reaches good performances in the wind energy conversion systems (WECS). However, this decoupling is lost if the parameters of the DFIG change. In this direction, a robust control scheme based on the nonlinear input-output linearizing and decoupling control strategy for the rotor side converter (RSC) of the WECS is presented. Simulation results show that the proposed control strategy provides a robust decoupled control and perfect tracking of the generated active and reactive powers of the wind turbine driven DFIG with a low THD rate of the generated currents.
