Modeling, Simulation and Analysis of Matrix Converter Using Matlab and Simulink

Hulusi Karaca and Ramazan Akkaya

Abstract—In this paper, a matrix converter (MC) which makes directly AC-AC power conversion is modeled using Matlab and Simulink and its working principles are analyzed. The gate signals of the power switches of MC are produced using Optimum Amplitude-Venturini Modulation (OAVM) method. This method provides the amplitude of output voltage up to 86.6% of input voltage, and unity fundamental displacement factor at the input regardless of the load displacement factor. The simulation results obtained from the model at various operating conditions are presented. These results prove effectiveness of the proposed matrix converter model with a unity input power factor. Consequently, the designed Matlab and Simulink model can be confidently used in the construction stage of the OAVM method based matrix converter.

Index Terms—Matrix converter, AC-AC converter, modeling and simulation, OAVM method.
