© 2013 IEEE. Model Predictive Control (MPC) with a finite control set and space vector modulation (SVM) are the most common control methods for the matrix converters (MCs). This paper is focused on the input and output currents performance analysis of the matrix converter controlled by SVM and MPC. A closed-loop control of the input current displacement angle is employed in the SVM strategy to provide unity input power factor over a wide range of voltage transfer ratio. For MPC, a discrete-time model of the converter, including the input filter and load, are used to predict the input and output currents for each valid switching state. The MPC, SVM, and power factor controlled SVM (PFC-SVM) methods are analyzed in detail, and their performance in controlling the input power factor, current quality, and transient response are compared through numerical simulations and experimental tests.
