In this paper, the behavior of a doubly fed induction machine (DFIM) is presented. It is functioning in mode motor and of which the rotor and the stator are fed through the intermediary of a chain of conversion of AC/AC type. The latter is composed of a converter AC/DC (three phase rectifier to diodes), a LC filter and a second converter DC/AC (inverter ordered while running to Modulation of Width of impulses). So, we adopted a strategy of survey having for objective to make servitude quickly of the DFIM while applying the order to flux oriented statorique led then of a regulating PI.
