ABSTRACT: we will discuss in this paper how the Doubly-Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) Increases The energy efficiency of the wind turbine compared with other types of generator such as Fixed Speed or Variable Speed Induction Generator (FSIG , VSIG). This investi-gation Based a practical tests and data from wind turbines in Zaafrana wind power plant at Suez Gulf Area in Egypt and also based on some expression from References and Data sheets from manufacturer all will be mentioned Later .at first we shall explain the wind energy theory and the Wind Turbine combination this will be useful to illustrate the advantage of using DFIG in wind turbine system. also we will discuss the wind energy in the area of Suez Gulf area Zaafrana power Plant.
