This chapter presents the modeling and simulation results of variable speed wind turbine driven by doubly fed induction generator (DFIG). The feeding of the generator is ensured through its stator directly connected to the electrical grid and by its rotor connected to the grid through two power converters, which are controlled by the pulse width modulation (PWM) technique. This configuration is the most used in the wind power generation systems. For the variable speed operation of the studied system, the maximum power point tracking strategy is applied for the turbine, and the stator flux-oriented vector control is used for the generator. The MATLAB/Simulink software is used for the system modeling and simulation. For the wind velocity model, a random wind profile is simulated, and the turbine and the generator parameters are extracted from an existing wind turbine system in the literature. The obtained results are addressed in this chapter.
