This thesis deals with the compliance of fixed speed and variable speed wind turbines based on doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) with the new UK grid code in terms of reactive power capability and fault ride through capability. Moreover, a new technique which enables the converter rating reduction of the DFIG based on variable frequency operation is proposed and evaluated in this thesis.
