This paper focuses on wind energy conversion system (WECS) analysis and control for power generation along with problems related to the mitigation of harmonic pollution in the grid using a variable-speed structure control of the doubly fed induction generator (DFIG). A control approach based on the so-called sliding mode control (SMC) that is both efficient and suitable is used for power generation control and harmonic-current compensation. The WECS then behaves as an active power filter (APF). The method aims at improving the overall efficiency, dynamic performance and robustness of the wind power generation system. Simulation results obtained on a 20-kW, 380-V, 50-Hz DFIG confirm the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
