The aim of this work is to developing sliding mode control of active and reactive stator powers produced by a wind energy conversion system (WECS), based on doubly fed induction generator (DFIG). A flux estimation model and rotor current sensor are no longer required. The controller is developed from the DFIG nonlinear-coupled model. Moreover, the global stability and the DFIG states' boundedness when our low-cost sliding mode control is applied are established analytically. It is revealed that the $(dq)$ components of the rotor flux remain near their nominal values. Our approach is validated via simulation in the case of a WECS based on DFIG rating at 1.5 MW. The robustness and the performances are verified with the presence of parametric variations and disturbances in the case of an unbalanced grid.
