In this paper Model Reference Adaptive Control (MRAC) for Wind energy conversion system (WECS) doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) is proposed using direct power control (DPC) based on space-vector modulation (SVM) afor fixed switching frequency in the d-q reference frame is proposed for wind generation application using MPPT strategy. First, a mathematical model of the doubly-fed induction generator written in an appropriate d-q reference frame is established to investigate simulations. In order to control the DFIG direct power control and space-vector modulation (DPC-SVM) are combined to replace the hysteresis controllers used in the original DPC drive, the active and reactive powers are controllers by a PID regulators. The performances of MRAC which is based on the DPC-SVM combination are investigated and compared to those obtained from the PID regulators Results obtained in Matlab/Simulink® environment show that the MRAC is more robust, superior dynamic performance and hence found to be a suitable replacement of the conventional controller for the high performance drive applications.
