In this paper, we propose a wind energy conversion system (WECS) at variable speed using a doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) controlled on the rotor side through a cycloconverter. The dynamic behavior of the WECS, including the models of the wind turbine, the DFIG, the cycloconverter, and the power control of this system, is investigated. The power control of this system is applied to achieve the independent control of the active and reactive powers exchanged between the wind generator and the grid. In addition, a maximum power point tracking (MPPT) control is included in the control system to capture the maximum power from the wind. Moreover, the cycloconverter with DFIG are used to test the possibility to operate in two quadrant modes (sub-synchronous and super-synchronous modes). The description of the proposed system is presented with the detailed dynamic modeling equations. The simulation results are presented, to demonstrate the performance and the efficiency of this system.
