Due to depleting fossil fuel reserves and growing environmental concerns, the world is shifting to renewable energy resources. From which wind energy generation is more attractive in terms of efficiency and stability. To maintain the wind turbine's voltage profile during the wind turbine's variable speed, a controller is needed to analyze the effects of varying wind speed on the wind generator's operation. For this purpose, this research proposes a controller for voltage profile improvement of DFIG connected wind turbine. The controller will be designed and simulated in MATLAB/Simulink, and results will be analyzed on different wind speeds and during the change in connected Load. The suggested controller design will be based on a stationary PI controller, and the effective performance will be enhanced by tuning the PI controller with Salp Swarm Optimization (SSO). The output will be compared with Whale Optimization Algorithm (WOA) and Grey Wolf Optimization (GWO).
