Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of WSEAS Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

ABSTRACT: The objective of this article is the study of the dynamic behavior of a wind turbine based on doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) with Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) without enslavement of speed and PITCH control. The DFIG stator is directly connected to the grid however; the rotor is linked via a power electronic converter (rectifier, filter, and inverter). The stator active and reactive powers are controlled directly by adjusting the DFIG rotor quantities, while applying direct vector control based on a first order sliding mode controller (SMC).
