During the unbalance operation of a standalone brushless doubly-fed induction generator (BDFIG), the negative sequence component causes significant unbalanced effect on the voltage and current of the power winding (PW). In this paper, anew control strategy is proposed to minimize the voltage unbalance effect of a standalone BDFIG under unbalanced loads. The proposed control strategy consists of two parts. The first part represents the conventional direct voltage control (DVC) strategy to control the frequency and magnitude of the positivesequence PW voltage. The second part is the proposed strategy to minimize the negative sequence component in the output voltage of PW with a negative sequence compensator in the machine side converter (MSC). The dual second-order generalized integrator (DSOGI) is used to extract negative-sequence component of the PW voltage. Proportional integral controllers are used to obtain reference of the control winding (CW) current which compensate the negative sequence component of the PW voltage. The proportional-integral-resonant (PIR) controller is applied to regulate the CW current in positive reference frame. A prototype 30 kVA BDFIG test platform is developed in the laboratory to verify the proposed strategy.
