Doubly fed induction generators (DFIGs), often organized in wind parks, are the most important generators used for variable-speed wind energy generation. This paper reviews the control systems for the operation of DFIGs and brushless DFIGs in wind energy applications. Control systems for stand-alone operation, connection to balanced or unbalanced grids, sensorless control, and frequency support from DFIGs and low-voltage ride-through issues are discussed.
