Wind energy is a promising source of electricity in the world and fastest-growing. Doubly-Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) systems dominate and widely used in wind power system because of their advantages over other types of generators, such as working at different speeds and not needing continuous maintenance. In this paper used the PI controller and Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) device specifically static compensator (STATCOM) to investigate the effect of the controller and FACTS device on the system. PI controller tuning by Particle Swarm Optimization technique (PSO) to limit or reduced the fault current in (DFIG) system. The responses of different kinds of faults have been presented like; two lines to ground faults and three lines to ground faults at different operating conditions. Faults are applied to three proposed controllers; the first controller is the Proportional-Integral (PI), the second controller is PI-controller based on Particle Swarm Optimization (PI-PSO) technique and STATCOM. A reactive power static synchronous compensator (STATCOM) is used, the main aim for the use of STATCOM is to improve the stability of a wind turbine system in addition to this is improving voltages profile, reduce power losses, treatment of power flow in overloaded transmission lines. The simulation programming is implemented using MATLAB program.
