This paper presents an advanced control of Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) based wind turbine under electrical grid Disturbance. Two mains problems are faced by DFIG; Low-Voltage Ride Trough capability (LVRT) and fluctuating output power. In order to keep DFIG connected to electrical grid, to improve dynamic behavior of DFIG under symmetrical voltage dip and to smooth the output power injected in the electrical grid an advanced control scheme is used. Simulations have been carried out, and the results demonstrate the effectiveness of our control.
