Induction generator based wind power generation has been dominating the wind market since the rise of wind power industry at the end of last century and will be continuously in a favorable position for large-scale grid connection given its lower cost and more mature technology compared with other wind generation for the foreseeable future [1]. Fixed-speed induction generator (FSIG-Type 1 Wind Gen Model) and doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG-Type 3 Wind Gen Model) are two main types of induction generator adopted for wind power generation especially considering the fact that DFIG is the most frequently-used technology to date.
