Abstract

Direct conversion of AC power between three-phase systems operating at different frequencies can be achieved using solid-state circuits known as matrix converters. These converters do not need energy storage elements, but they require sophisticated control algorithms to operate the switches. In this work we propose and evaluate the use of a sigma-delta modulation approach to control the operation of a direct matrix converter, together with a revised line filter topology suited to better handle the peculiarities of the switching noise produced by the sigma-delta modulation. Simulation results show the feasibility of such an approach, which is able to generate arbitrary output waveforms and adjust its input reactive power. Comparison with a space vector modulation implementation shows also better performance about total harmonic distortion, i.e., less harmonics in the input and output.
