This paper deals with a wind energy conversion system based on DFIG connected to the electricity network. The aim of this work is to model the wind chain based on the management and control of the two converters by means of a PI controller to ensure the stability of the system irrespective to the fluctuation of the wind. The different simulation results of all the conversion chains realized under the MATLAB/SIMULINK environment, allowed the evaluation of the suggested system’s performance.
