This paper presents a compact and low cost digital signal controller (DSC) based implementation for power control of a doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) based wind energy setup for micro-grid applications. The experimental setup consists of a back to back converter, a 1.1 kW DFIG and two low cost, industry standard DSCs. Stator active power and reactive power are controlled by means of the rotor currents. Decoupled components of the rotor current in a rotating frame are controlled by a robust, disturbance observer based control structure. The proposed controller was validated through experiments.
