In this article, we present a comparative study between neural space vector modulation (NSVM) and fuzzy pulse width modulation (FPWM) strategy in neuro-sliding mode controller (NSMC) of active and stator reactive power control of a doubly fed induction generator (DFIG). The obtained results showed that the proposed NSMC with FPWM technique have rotor current with low harmonic distortion and low powers ripples than NSVM technique.
