Wound-rotor induction generators have numerous advantages in wind power generation over other types of generators. One scheme is realized when a converter cascade is used between the slip-ring terminals and the utility grid to control the rotor power. This configuration is called the doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG). In this paper, a vector control scheme is developed to control the rotor side voltage source converter that allows independent control of the generated active and reactive power as well as the rotor speed to track the maximum wind power point. A neuro-fuzzy gain tuner is proposed to control the DFIG. The input for each neuro-fuzzy system is the error value of generator speed, active or reactive power. The choice of only one input to the system simplifies the design. Experimental investigations have also been conducted on a laboratory DFIG to verify the calculated results.
