In order to improve the quality of energy and reduce the harmonics produced by the power electronics converters, it is proposed and developed in this article the direct torque control, in which the flux and torque are estimated from the only measurable electrical quantities. The direct torque control DTC method, to enhance the dynamic and static performances as well as the robustness of the control of the Wind Energy Conversion System (DSIG). DTC is a control technique that exploits the possibility of imposing torque and flux on alternating current machines in a decoupled manner, once powered by a voltage inverter without current regulation made by a feedback loop, ensuring a decoupling, similar to that obtained from a vector control. The technique involved rapid torque response, insensitivity to parametric variation, in particular the machine's rotor time constant and systematic suitability for control without speed sensor. The main function of the generator side controller is to track the maximum power through controlling the rotational speed of the wind turbine using PI controller. The performance and the effectiveness of the   proposed control system are tested via simulation results in terms of reference tracking, and robustness against parameters variations of the DSIG. Simulation results for 1.5 MW DSIG control show robust with respect to the parametric variation 2 Rs, 1,5 Rs et 0.5 Rs, and fast dynamic behavior of system, with the temps of response is 0.02 s, active power extracted 0.15 MW with lambda 9 and Cp 0,5 that the wind turbine can operate at its optimum power point for a wide range of wind speed and power quality can be greatly improved.
