Wind energy generation with Doubly Fed Induction Generator is a dominant factor in wind forms. High penetration and variable fault conditions DFIG absorbs more reactive power from the grid. Applying a set of optimized control parameters, the reactive power of the systems shall be further enhanced. Due to presence of variable load with fault conditions reactive power is varied in the system. Varied reactive power is compensated by the Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM). In DFIG, the Real and reactive power are modified based on rotor speed and load variations. The simulation result shows the effectiveness and performance of the DFIG with Static Synchronous Compensator (STATCOM) with their control techniques.
