Wind power's fundamental difficulties are becoming more visible as the system's penetration grows. Wind energy fluctuation must be reduced, and large-scale units must be connected to the grid constantly and dependably. Despite conventional power vector control can achieve decoupling control, DFIG has a high reliance on elements; therefore power control and maximum power tracing is a critical area of research. The DFIG model is constructed on the MATLAB/Simulink platform and is based on an examination of active power research's current state. The impact of wind speed on power generated, pitch angle, and reactive power is investigated by simulating the dynamic model of a DFIG WT.
