The paper investigates contribution of doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) to system frequency responses. Impact of different governor settings and system inertia are investigated. Three distinct cases are simulated in order to illustrate the influence of DFIG penetration on frequency regulation. Provision of inertial response by DFIG through artificial speed coupling is also presented. The effects of the inertial response on the machine behavior and its significance for frequency regulation are discussed. The influence of converter current limits and auxiliary loop parameters on the inertial response are illustrated and a novel control algorithm is developed for extracting maximum energy from the turbine in a stable manner. The results of the study are illustrated on the example of an isolated power system consisting of a diesel generator and a DFIG.
