This paper presents a control strategy for a grid connected squirrel cage Induction generator (SCIG)-based wind energy conversion system. Control strategies of the grid side and stator side converters are presented along with the mathematical modeling of the employed configuration. The maximum power point extraction of the wind turbine, unity power factor operation are also addressed along with the proposed strategy. The developed approach control is then simulated in MATLAB-SIMULINK and the developed model is used to illustrate the behavior of the system. The simulation results are presented and discussed at the end of this paper.
