Power captured from the wind can be boosted by controlling the shaft speed. In directive to capitalize on the power captured from the wind, Power Electronic converters are required so as to interface the machine with the grid. This paper describes the matrix converter topology, further the same is compared with readily available Voltage Source Inverter. Simulation results backs up the prerogatives made on the advantages and disadvantages of the matrix converter topology. This Paper proposes converter topology for doubly fed induction generator (DFIG). As compare to conventional ac-dc-ac converters, the quantity of power semiconductor switches is abridged in the suggested converter, and the losses have reduced.  The performance of proposed DFIG is validated with simulation using MATLAB/SIMULINK software.
