A quasi-Z-source three-to-single-phase matrix converter is proposed with low-frequency ripple power compensation. The employed impedance network between the source grid and the matrix converter extends the voltage gain; meanwhile, it has filtering function. Therefore, voltage step-up devices and an additional input filter are avoided. In addition, for a conventional three-to-single-phase matrix converter, input current of the source grid contains high harmonic components because of double-line-frequency pulsating power produced in single-phase side. A model predictive control-based ripple power compensation system is proposed in this paper to eliminate the low-order harmonic components from the three-phase input currents and voltages. Thus, the impedance parameters could be small in size and value. Simulation and experimental results verify the analysis and control of the proposed topology.
