In this study, a novel control approach for a doubly-fed induction generator (DFIG) is developed and applied to improve the system’s dynamic response and performance for providing high energy quality while avoiding harmonic accumulations. Because of its ease of implementation, field-oriented control (FOC) is frequently used. This control has great sensitivity to the machine’s parametric variations. For this reason, adaptive Backstepping control (ABC) is capable of preserving almost all of the performance and robustness properties. However, its analytical formulation has a problem. To overcome these disadvantages, the hybrid control (HC) is developed and verified to enable rapid response, complete reference tracking, and appropriate dynamic behavior with a low ripple level. This control is a combination of FOC’s and ABC’s control laws. The prepared control is explored by simulation testing using Matlab/Simulink and practical implementation using an FPGA board with actual turbine settings and a real wind profile of Dakhla City, Morocco. The results of hardware simulation show the efficacy of the HC in terms of speed and robustness, with a total harmonic distortion THD = 0.95, a value of THD that reveals the quality of the energy injected into the grid.
