Abstract: In recent years, due to the interconnection of large capacity wind turbines to the power grid lead, there are serious issues in the stability of Grid and generation of electrical power. Also, it is showing effect on the dynamic performance of the electrical power systems. To maintain stability during sudden changes in the grid, the LVRT (Low Voltage Ride Through) capability of the Wind Turbines is one of the prime requirements. Wind turbines attached to DFIG (Doubly Fed Induction Generators) are advantageous which have LVRT capability at limited extent. In this paper, the elaborated discussion of the LVRT of Wind turbines shafted to DFIG’s in the Grid. It also presents the complete description of the sudden changes in the systems like transient characteristics and the Doubly Fed Induction Generators dynamic response at the time of grid voltage faults (Symmetrical and Asymmetrical). The latest rotor side control technology is displayed in this paper for DFIG and wind turbines with improved capacity of low voltage ride through at the time of severe grid voltage sags. A Fuzzy Logic controller-based control technology is introduced in this paper which performs the balancing the rotor-side voltage and short circuits during the disturbances in the Grid. The advantage in this proposed control scheme is that it reduces the additional cost and reliability issues. So, the DFIG is efficient and usability company norms are satisfied with the proposed Fuzzy logic controller compared to regular controller like PI controller. The performance of the proposed system is simulated and verified in the computer. The results are displayed and it conclude that the control strategy of LVRT capability for Grid connected DFIG based wind turbine systems with Fuzzy Logic Controller are more effective than the conventional control Methods.
