Abstract: Doubly fed induction generators (DFIG) are widely used in wind turbine generating systems (WTGS). The control of the active and reactive power is done with a rotor current controller. The problem in using a PI controller is the tuning of gain and cross-coupling on DFIG parameters in the whole operating range. A model predictive controller (MPC) is used for power control of DFIG. By using MPC peak over shoot and settling time have been reduced when compared with PI controller. This paper includes simulation of WTGS vector control using PI and MBPC and the performance evaluation of these two systems. And a model of PI controller based WTGS vector control has also been simulated using MATLB Simulink. Simulation results are presented to validate the proposed controllers.
