This paper presents the control study of a variable speed Wind Energy Conversion System (WECS) based on the Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG). The generator is connected directly to grid by its stator and fed by a Matrix Converter (MC) at its wound rotor. The indirect vector control is adopted. The stator flux is oriented for controlling the power and current, which are regulated by PI controller via the pole placement technique, and the Venturini Modulation Method (VMM) is applied to control the MC. The performance of the whole system is verified by Matlab/Simulink simulation. Results in transient and steady-state regimes are presented to validate the effectiveness of the proposed wind conversion system. Results confirm the high performance of the control strategy adopted in the wind power generation system based on a DFIG powered by a MC.
