This paper presents fuzzy logic control of Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) wind turbine in a sample power system. First, a mathematical model of the doubly fed induction generator written in an appropriate d-q reference frame is established to investigate simulations. In order to control the rotor currents of DFIG, a power active and reactive control law is synthesized using PI controllers. Then, the performances of fuzzy logic controller (FLC) are investigated and compared to those obtained from the PI controller. Results obtained in Matlab/Simulink environment show that the FLC is more robust, prove excellent performance for the control unit by improving power quality and stability of wind turbine.
