In this paper, the control of a stand-alone doubly fed induction generator (DFIG)-based wind power conversion system with unbalanced and nonlinear loads is investigated. Under these load conditions, the quality of stator voltage and current waveforms of the DFIG is strongly affected due to the negative and distorted components, reducing the performance of other normal loads connected to the DFIG. To tackle this problem, the control strategy is comprehensively developed in both rotor-side converter (RSC) and load-side converter (LSC) of the DFIG. The LSC is used as an active power filter to compensate for unbalanced and distorted stator currents whereas the RSC is developed to fully eliminate unbalanced and harmonic voltages at the point of common coupling. The proposed compensation method is based on current controllers in either the RSC or the LSC, which employ a proportional integral plus a resonant controller. These current controllers are controlled in the positive synchronous reference frame so that the rotor current and stator current are directly regulated without decomposing sequential components. Analytical issues on how to eliminate unbalanced and distorted components in the stator voltage and current are also described in this paper. To verify the effectiveness of the proposed control strategy, experimental results with 2.2-kW DFIG topology are presented and discussed in the paper.
