Doubly fed induction generators are widely used in wind power plants, yet their performance is vulnerable to grid voltage faults. Recent regulations require the wind generator to have the capability of fault crossing to stay connected even in faulty conditions. This paper investigates the problem of stabilizing the rotor current when the stator voltage is affected by the faults that occurred at the nearby grid. The proposed controller consists of 2 terms: the first is responsible for the internal stability of generator dynamics and the second compensates for the effect of the fault on the stator voltage. The stability of generator circuit is verified by using linear quadratic regulator and pole placement criteria. Also, to enhance the performance of the stabilizers, genetic algorithm is used to adjust the stabilizers. To detect the stator voltage disorders and to determine the suitable time for switching in fault stabilizers, a fault observer is also suggested. The fault detection and stabilization structure is simulated and shows higher levels of performance in faulty conditions than in conventional rotor side converter controllers in faulty grid conditions.
