This paper presents a new contribution for the control of Wind-turbine energy driven wound field synchronous generator (WFSG) connected to the grid via a back to back converter. The goal is to track the maximum power point via a dedicated control. For this purpose, a robust backstepping controller with integral actions is applied to the WFSG. This control is based on both feedback laws and Lyapunov technique. In order to verify the validity of the proposed method, this control is applied to an accurate dynamic model of the whole generator. The simulation results show the performances.
