An electrical system for wind turbines using cage induction generator with back to back converters for connection to the network is experimentally tested under short circuit conditions in a 55kW generator set-up. 50% voltage sag is realized in the laboratory set-up to investigate the performance of the power electronic converters control under the newly introduced grid codes. Standard vector control techniques are implemented with the aim to maintain balance between generated power and power supplied to the grid. The robustness of the power electronics converter is experimentally analyzed under the short circuit for different settings of the converter nominal current and the converters are found to be robust against voltage sags.
