The matrix converter can be used in a wide range of applications. Nevertheless, it does not yet represent a sufficiently mature option for industrialization. In order to resolve this problem, this paper examines the hardware of the matrix converter and identifies all the circuits that should be included in this. It also quantifies the operating conditions and provides practical guidelines for the step-by-step design of a matrix converter. These considerations are validated with experimental results. In this way, it can be said that this paper represents a step forward toward the development of reliable matrix converters for real applications.
