Abstract

This paper describes the application of a simplified indirect model predictive current control strategy for a direct Matrix Converter. The direct matrix converter has a large number of available switching states which implies that the implementation of predictive control high computational cost. In this paper, a predictive current control strategy is proposed in order to simplify the computational cost while avoiding the use of weighting factors. The method is based on the fictitious dc-link concept, which has been used in the past for the classical modulation and control techniques of the direct matrix converter. The proposed controller is enhanced with a fixed switching predictive strategy in order to improve the performance of the full system. Simulated results confirm the feasibility of the proposed controller demonstrating that it is an alternative to classical predictive control strategies for the direct matrix converter.
