ABSTRACT
This paper presents the state space modelling of Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) for small signal stability based Wind Energy
Conversion System (WECS). A detailed mathematical model of wind turbine, DFIG machine and power converters is presented in this
paper to derive the complete non linear dynamic equations of the studied system. The gains of PI controller in Rotor Side Converter
(RSC) and Grid Side Converter (GSC) are obtained by butterworth polynomial method to improve the dynamic performance of DFIG
and the power system stability. DFIG model connected to the infinite bus is studied under different operating conditions such as
changing generator parameters under constant wind speed. Small signal stability of this linearized system is carried out by eigen value
analysis. Finally, this paper presents an analysis of the dynamic behavior of DFIG under different conditions. The system under study
is executed by using MATLAB/Simulink package. The whole system of DFIG is verified for constant wind speed. The system is tested
using different values of generator parameters to determine the preferred ranges for the system stability. The results are performed to
prove the importance of the proposed controllers.

Keywords: DFIG, Eigen Value, Taylor Series, Wind Turbine Control, Stability.

1. INTRODUCTION
Generation of electricity from renewable sources, and specially from the wind, is considered in present time as a competitive
and necessary alternative to fossil resources. Wind generator turbines can work as fixed speed or variable speed. Pitch-
adjusting variable-speed wind generator turbines like DFIG have become the dominating type of yearly installed wind
turbines in modern age. Many reasons for selecting DFIG, such as decreasing of the mechanical structure stresses and the
possibility to control four quadrant active and reactive power capabilities, have been chosen for variable speed operation of
wind turbines. The variable speed wind turbine can provide decoupled control of active and reactive power of the generator
and power quality improvement . DFIG is commonly used in the wind power system for its advantages over other wind
turbine generators, such as squirrel cage induction generator and permanent magnet synchronous generator . The
characteristics of DFIG have high efficiency, flexible control and low investment. The stator terminals of DFIG is directly
connected to the power grid while the rotor terminals is connected to the mains via a back-to-back converter, which only
takes about 20%30% of the DFIG rated capacity. The back-to-back converter consists of three part RSC, GSC and dc link
capacitor. The controllers of the power converter have significant effect on the stability of grid-connected DFIG . A DFIG
system, including induction generator, two-mass drive train, power converters and feedback controllers is a multivariable
nonlinear and strongly coupled system. Such this nonlinear system may occur under certain conditions that leading to
oscillatory instability. Consequently, practical analysis of DFIG stability will have to include the non linear parts consisting
of the whole system. Eigen value analysis of the DFIG wind turbine system has been discussed in , where frequency
and damping ratio analysis are focused. For the control of a wind turbine driven by DFIG, different methods like Direct
Torque Control (DTC) and Variable Structure Control (VSC) have been suggested over the last decade . However, one
common technique is to use vector control on the basis of d-q transformation with stator-flux orientation or stator-voltage
orientation (also referred to as grid-voltage or grid-flux orientation) . Stator Voltage Orientation (SVO) is used here for
control of RSC and GSC. Typically, there is a way that can be used for vector control schemes, Proportional-Integral (PI
controllers) regulators. The difficulty then lies in the configuration and the determination of the coefficients of the regulators.
Here, in this paper butterworth polynomial method is used to get the gains of PI controllers for RSC and GSC. The DFIG is
modeled in d-q axis reference frame. The power converters and the controllers of RSC and GSC are also modeled. The
nonlinear system is linearized at various operating conditions according to changing generator parameters under constant
wind speed. Eigen value analysis is then applied for stability check. Matlab/Simulink is a powerful tool for time domain
simulations. In this paper, Matlab/Simulink has been used in designing and modeling of DFIG. Dynamic DFIG model is
expressed by a set of a non linear differential equations. In Matlab/Simulink, each differential equation can be represented by
an integral unit. Using matrix concepts, a set of non linear differential equations will be expressed as non linear state space
equations. Linearization method using Taylor series expansion will be used to convert the non linear equations into linear

equation . After that the stability of the whole system will be studied after getting the eigen values. Also, the system is
studied for different parameters of DFIG.

2. MODELLING OF DFIG WIND TURBINE SYSTEM

The DFIG system utilizes a wound rotor induction generator in which the stator terminals are directly connected to power
grid and the rotor terminals are fed through back-to-back bidirectional Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) converters as shown
in Figure 1. The back-to-back PWM converters consist of RSC, GSC and a dc-link capacitor. For the wind turbine control
level, two stage control strategies, based on the electric power versus wind speed curve, are used for DFIG wind turbines:
power optimization strategy under rated wind speed (MPPT mode) and power limitation strategy above rated wind speed
(Pitch control mode). For the DFIG control level, SVO is used for both RSC and GSC to achieve decoupled control of active
and reactive power as illustrated in the next sections. The next sections will describe the mathematical models of DFIG as the
following.

2.2 Operating region and aerodynamic of the wind turbine

The wind turbine operates, with different dynamics, from the cut-in wind speed (usually 4 m/s, for modern wind turbines) to
the cut-out wind speed (around 24 m/s), as shown in Figure 2. Three distinct wind speed points can be noticed in this power
curve :
1) _ : The lowest wind speed at which wind turbine starts to generate power.

2) Rated wind speed: Wind speed at which the wind turbine generates the rated power, which is usually the maximum
power wind turbine can produce.
3) _ :: Wind speed at which the turbine ceases power generation and is shut down (with automatic brakes
and/or blade pitching) to protect the turbine from mechanical damage.

Figure 4 Wind turbine mechanical power output and MPP versus turbine speed at different wind speed

Figure 4 shows turbine mechanical power as a function of turbine speed by substituting (7), (8) and (9) in (6) at various wind
speed and TSR . The power for a certain wind speed is maximum at a certain value of rotor speed called optimum turbine
speed , . This is the speed which corresponds to optimum tip speed ratio and maximum power coefficient , .
In order to have maximum possible power, the turbine should always operate at . This is possible by controlling the
rotational speed of the turbine so that it always rotates at the optimum speed of rotation. The maximum power points curve is
obtained as shown in Figure 4. The objective of the MPPT operation mode is to maximize power extraction at low to medium
wind speeds by following the maximum value of the wind power coefficient ( and ) as depicted in Figure 4.
2.3 Gearbox ratio calculation
Here, A gearbox is necessary to adapt the low speed of the turbine rotor to the high speed of the generator. The gearbox
conversion ratio ( ), also known as the gear ratio, is designed to match the high-speed generator with the low-speed
turbine blades. The gearbox ratio can be determined as follows:
1) Firstly, it is necessary to get the values of , and for gearbox ratio calculation. The values of , and
in this work are 0.48 and 8.1, respectively.
2) Then, by using (6) at , , = 12 / and the rated value of wind turbine generator power which in this work
is 1.5 MW. The blade length R=30.6567m is easily found.
3) Then, it is necessary to get the value of rated turbine speed which is calculated by using (5) at =
12 / and = . The value of in this work is 3.1706 / .
4) Finally, for a given rated speed of the generator and turbine, it is easily to calculate the gearbox ratio using (10) at
rated value of generator speed which is equal to 1750 rpm and = 30.277 rpm in this work. The value of
gearbox ratio in this work is 57.7996.

In DFIG wind energy systems, the stator of the generator is directly connected to the grid, and its voltage and frequency can

The above model of DFIG is a nonlinear dynamic model because the coefficients of the equations are functions of the state
variables. So the whole model of DFIG needs to be linearized to get the stability of the system. From (1) (31), a set of state
equations are obtained to present the DFIG wind turbine system. The equations will be written in a matrix form as in (32).

In this section the linearization of the whole model of DFIG model described by nonlinear differential equations is
performed. The procedure that will be used to linearize the equation system is based on Taylors series expansion . The
first step is to calculate the equilibrium point. The equilibrium points are those points where all the derivatives are
simultaneously zero, and also the points which we are going to operate around with small variations. To find the equilibrium
point the equation below has to be solved.

5. STATE SPACE REPRESENTATION AND SMALL SIGNAL STABILITY ANALYSIS OF
THE OVERALL MODEL OF DFIG
The state space representation of the overall system and the small signal stability analysis are applied for DFIG connected to
the infinite bus where the infinite bus is considered as voltage source of constant voltage and constant frequency. The small
signal stability is the ability of the power system to remain in synchronism under small disturbances. Small signal stability
analysis for the power system determines the properties of operation of the system due to small disturbance in the system.
This is done by getting the eigen values of the system for a small change. In this paper each state of the system is perturbed
by a small increment near from operating point according to wind speed. Taking into consideration that d-q components for
the stator voltage and flux in SVO frame for DFIG are given : = , = 0 and = 0, = . The state variable
X can be defined for DFIG as: = [ , , , , r , , , , , , , , , , , ]
.The states of DFIG model in this paper are fourteen states. Equations (38)-(42) are used for describing the electrical and
mechanical dynamics of DFIG generator. Equation (43) is used for getting wind turbine mechanical torque. Equations (44)
and (45) are used for obtaining the GSC and filter model. Equation (46) is used to get the dc link model. Equations (48)-(50)
are used for RSC controller. Equations (51)-(53) are used for GSC controller.

6. RESULTS UNDER EFFECT OF CHANGING THE GENERATORS PARAMETERS ON

STABILITY
The wind turbine and DFIG parameters used here are shown in Table 2 and Table 3, respectively. In this paper the effect of
changing the generator parameters on stability is studied. Where the values of the generator parameters will be changed,
therefore the stability will be changed too. In this paper the generator parameters such as , , , and will be
changed independently under constant wind speed V _ = 12 m/sec. Where and are responsible for temperature and
power losses, Also, and are responsible for leakage flux and is responsible for saturation flux. The relation between
the increasing or decreasing of these parameters independently around the parameters mentioned in Table 3 and the stability
are studied. Finally, the preferred ranges of values of the generator parameters are studied for the stability of the system.

6.1 Effect of changing stator resistance on stability

Table 4 gives the eigen values of the fourteenth order model of the whole system using DFIG for different values of the stator
resistance , where a complex pair of eigen values can then be written as = . Where represents the real
component of the eigen value giving the damping of the oscillation and is the imaginary part giving the oscillation's
frequency. From Table 4 it is clear that the system for values of between 2.65 10 and 2.65 10 is stable due to
< 0 for locating the eigen values in the left half plane. For more values of greater than 2.65 10 the system will be
unstable. For smaller values of than 2.65 10 the system will be also stable. Also, the real frequency and the
damping ratio are obtained as shown in Table 4. Where = /(2 ) and = / + .

6.2 Effect of changing rotor resistance on stability

Table 5 shows different values of rotor resistance and corresponding eigen values of DFIG. When the value of rotor
resistance is changed to 4 and 2.63 10 , the proportional gain of , = , will be only changed to -3.8679 and
0.1318, respectively. From Table 5 it is clear that the system for values of between 4 and 2.63 10 is stable due to
< 0 for locating the eigen values in the left half plane. For more values of greater than 4 the system will be unstable.
For smaller values of than 2.63 10 the system will be also stable. Also, the real frequency and the damping ratio
are obtained as shown in Table 5.

6.3 Effect of varying magnetizing inductance on stability

Table 6 illustrates different values of magnetizing inductance and corresponding eigen values of DFIG. From Table 6 it is
clear that the system for values of between 2.04749 10 H and 5.4749 10 H is stable due to < 0 for locating
the eigen values in the left half plane. For more values of greater than 2.04749 10 H the system will be unstable. For
smaller values of than 5.4749 10 H the system will be also stable. Also, the real frequency and the damping ratio
are obtained as shown in Table 6.

6.4 Effect of varying stator inductance on stability

Table 7 depicts different values of stator self inductance and corresponding eigen values of DFIG. From Table 7 it is clear
that the system for values of between 0.0223 H and 0.0055 H is stable due to < 0 for locating the eigen values in the
left half plane. For more values of greater than 0.0223 H the system will be unstable. For smaller values of than
0.0055 H the system will be also stable. Also, the real frequency and the damping ratio are obtained as shown in Table 7.

6.5 Effect of varying rotor inductance on stability
Table 8 gives different values of rotor self inductance and corresponding eigen values of DFIG. When the value of rotor self
inductance is changed to 0.1392 H and 0.0055 H, the integral gain of , = , will be only changed to 1.3212 10
and 17.4719, respectively. From Table 8 it is clear the system for values of between 0.1392 H and 0.0055 H is stable due
to < 0 for locating the eigen values in the left half plane. For more values of greater than 0.1392 H the system will be
unstable. For smaller values of than 0.0055 H the system will be also stable. Also, the real frequency and the damping
ratio are obtained as shown in Table 8.

7. CONCLUSION
In this paper, an overall nonlinear dynamic mathematical model of DFIG wind turbine with time-varying parameters has been
established based on WECS principle. The Taylor series expansion is used for linearization the nonlinear equations of DFIG
wind turbine to facilitate its dynamic characteristics studying. A dynamic model of an infinite power system connected to a
DFIG wind turbine of fourteenth order has been introduced by using the eigen value analysis. The overall dynamic system of
the DFIG wind turbine with controllers is used for improving the power system stability. The equations for a small signal
stability analysis for the generator has been developed. The influence of generator parameters on the system dynamic stability
has been investigated for mentioned cases under constant wind speed. As the value of the generator parameters change, the
stability also will change. The preferred ranges of the generator parameters values for the system stability are concluded in
this work. For stator and rotor resistances value smaller than or equal to the maximum value recorded in Table 9 the system
will be stable and the system efficiency will increase. Also, for stator and rotor self inductances value smaller than or equal to
the maximum value recorded in Table 9 the system will be stable. The results show that the system with proposed controllers
is stable for values in preferred ranges.
