In this work, we present a comparative study between four-level neural space vector modulation (4L-NSVM) and three-level neural space vector modulation (3L-NSVM) technique in indirect vector control (IVC) of reactive and active power control of a doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) for wind energy conversion systems (WECSs). Two controls techniques using IVC-4L-NSVM and IVC-3L-NSVM are proposed and compared. The validity of the proposed control schemes is verified by simulation tests of a DFIG-based wind turbine system (WTSs). The stator active power, stator reactive power and rotor current is determined and compared in the above strategies. The obtained results showed that the proposed IVC with 4L-NSVM technique have reactive and stator active power with low powers ripples and low rotor current harmonic distortion than 3L-NSVM technique.
