Abstract

Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) is one of the popular choices for wind generation due to its variable speed operation, low losses and relatively low cost as compared to fully rated converter-based wind turbines. However, there are many disadvantages as well of DFIG generation system such as vulnerability to grid disturbance due to direct connection between stator and grid [1]. The increased sensitivity of DFIG wind turbine to voltage sags requires additional protection scheme for Rotor Side Converter (RSC) [2], [3]. Power electronic converters protection in DFIG based system is very important to avoid any over/under voltage and overcurrent situation during faults.
