In this paper, we present the voltage build up process and the terminal voltage control of an isolated wind powered induction generator driven by a variable speed wind turbine using rotor flux oriented vector control. A description of the studied system is provided, and a simulation study is presented. The model used for the autonomous induction generator is a diphase one obtained by application of the Park transform. Theis model permits, when adopting some simplifying hypotheses, taking account the saturation effect. Wind powered isolated induction generators have an input, wind, that is not controllable, but they can be set to operate within a given variation of speed. Unlike a grid connected induction generator, in an isolated case, there should be a control system that keeps the DC bus voltage at a constant value when the speed of the rotor varies. The paper presents the control system to maintain the DC bus voltage at a constant value. This DC voltage is utilized for feeding an permanent magnet synchronous motor used as charge. The obtained results demonstrate a good performances of regulation for the DC voltage as input of the permanent magnet synchronous motor and the speed, torque and fluxes as its outputs.
