  • This paper presents a novel control strategy, dynamic programming power control (DPPC), to be applied to doubly fed induction generators most commonly used in wind energy applications. Although the technique can be implemented to control both rotor and grid converters, it will hereby be expounded the former, which regulates stator active and reactive powers. The results obtained are compared with those from other techniques, such as direct torque/power control (DTC/DPC) through the use of experimental tests, and indicate that DPPC achieves gains in dynamic response and considerable improvements in terms of ripple reduction and frequency spectrum as a result of constant switching frequency operation. The validation of results has been performed through experimental tests on a 6-kW generator.
