This paper presents the modeling and control of doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) based on wind turbine systems. In order to control the stator active and reactive powers of the DFIG, a control law is synthesized using two types of controllers: a linear PI controller and nonlinear Sliding Mode Controller (SMC). Their performances are compared in terms of power reference tracking and robustness against machine parameters variations. Simulation results using Matlab/Simulink have shown good performances of the wind energy converter system operate under typical wind variations and every propose control strategies.
