Firstly, the in-depth research of the severe asymmetrical fault and its impact on the operation characteristics of the DFIG and PMSG systems are investigated. Secondly, based on the operation characteristics analysis, the control objectives and priorities of the hybrid DFIG and PMSG systems are described first time during severe asymmetrical fault, respectively. In addition, the current allocation principles of each control unit in the DFIG and PMSG systems are investigated in detail according to the converter capacity and the system operation conditions. Furthermore, a coordinated control strategy for the hybrid wind farm is proposed. This strategy make full use of each wind farm’s current capability, both the operation performance of the entire hybrid wind farm and the voltage quality of the power grid was greatly improved collectively. Finally, the correctness of the theoretical analysis and the effectiveness of the proposed control strategy for the hybrid wind farm with DFIG and PMSG are validated by the simulation and experimental results.
