This paper presents the contribution of the application of fuzzy logic for the independent control of  the active and reactive power stator of a doubly fed induction generator (DFIG), used in a variable speed wind energy conversion system. So in this work, we are particularly interested in the application of indirect vector control by stator flux orientation to the DFIG, based on fuzzy controllers. These latter surpass the limits of conventional controllers and possess essential characteristics for the improvement of the robustness of the vector control with against parameters variations of the system. The obtained simulation results have shown that it is possible to control the stator powers, even in the presence of parametric variations.
