The present paper deals with the modeling and control of Wind Energy Conversion System WECS based on an isolated self-excited mode of double wound asynchronous using an FZEO algorithm. We develop the steady-state model of a double wound self-excited asynchronous generator for stand-alone renewable generation dispenses with the segregating real and imaginary components of the complex impedance of the induction generator. Its main objective is to study the sensitivity of the stator mutual leakage inductance on the modeling of such generator, when we used three versions of dual star induction generator electric models. Steady state performances and characteristics of different configurations are clearly examined and compared. Experimental results of the proposed dual three-phase asynchronous generator drive system show the good performance of the analysis system strategy for steady-state conditions. Detailed simulation and experimental investigation about various performances including loading and unloading characteristic of self-excited dual stator asynchronous generator are also presented in the paper.
