High efficiency Double-Fed Induction Generator applies new power electronic technology, and utilizes vector control to fix the magnetic direction of the stator to the vertical axis. Adjusting the input current of rotor via an inverter can separately control the cross axis and vertical axis current of real power and reactive power of a generator. Traditionally, rotating speed affects frequency and the output is unstable. This study concentrates on high efficiency Double-Fed Induction Generators and Traditional Generators from mathematic model to derive and control the characteristics simulation and comparison than get an output of high efficiency Double-Fed Industrial Generators. This study utilizes the simulation software MATLAB/Simulink to simulate the response characteristics of vector control of a Double-Fed Industrial Generator. The operating and control functions are better than those of a traditional generator.
