Multi-objective optimal controller design of a doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) wind turbine system using Differential Evolution (DE) is presented in this chapter. A detailed mathematical model of DFIG wind turbine with a close loop vector control system is developed. Based on this, objective functions, addressing the steady state stability and dynamic performance at different operating conditions are implemented to optimize the controller parameters of both the rotor and grid side converters. A superior ε-constraint method and method of adaptive penalties are applied to handle the multi-objective problem and the constraint with DE. Eigenvalue analysis and simulation are performed on the single machine infinite bus (SMIB) system to demonstrate the control performance of the system with the optimized controller parameters.
