The matrix converter topology for direct ac-to-ac conversion offers elimination of the bulky and unreliable d.c. link capacitors used in the popular voltage-source inverter (VSI) with a front-end rectifier. The resulting more compact and higher efficiency implementation is a desirable solution for a wide variety of applications, such as photovoltaic energy generation, motor drives, and energy storage systems.
