Control of Power Electronic Converters
Technical Dialogue Session
Matrix Converter, PWM, Current Control Mode, Voltage Boost
A comprehensive and systematic approach with novel contributions to the PWM control and operation of direct frequency changes or Matrix Converters operating in Current Control Mode with voltage boost capability is presented. New triangle comparison PWM strategy is optimal as it minimizes switching losses and is intuitive and simple for hardware implementation and expansion for other converter topologies. CCM of operation will enable waveform shaping and voltage boost above input voltage thus extending operation of MxC for power generation and distribution applications.
