In this paper, a direct Sliding Mode Control (SMC) of Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) driven by wind turbine with Space Vector Modulation (SVM) inverter is presented. The SMC is used to track the stator active and reactive power their references. The SVM inverter is used to improve the quality of the energy generated by DFIG which allows the minimizing of stator current harmonics and wide linear modulation range. Simulation results show that the proposed control give good performance and good quality of the energy where the THD of the stator current of the DFIG has small value.
