The purpose of this paper is to show a new state observer for doubly-fed generator. A proposed z-type observer algorithm based on mathematical model of doubly fed generator with additional variables treated as a disturbances has been used. A nonlinear multiscalar control method has been proposed to control active and reactive power of the generator. All analyses were verified by simulations and experiments tests.
