presented to maximize the power generated of Do

Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) wind turbine. The most

common constraints, namely, active power, reactive po-

wer, power factor, pitch angle and grid side variable

quency converter has been taken into consideration.

design and operation optimization problems have been

considered and solved simultaneously to determine the

optimal pitch angle and power control. It is observed

optimizing the pitch angle is not sufficient to maxi

the generated power. It may cause an undesired power

quality in grid, requiring a multi-disciplinary optimiza-

tion approach to obtain the optimum power quality.
