This paper proposes a modified space-vector pulse width modulation (PWM) strategy which can restrict the common-mode voltage for three-phase to three-phase matrix converter and still keep sinusoidal input and output waveforms and unity power factor at the input side. The proposed control method has been developed based on contributing the appropriate space vectors instead of using zero space vectors. The advantages of this proposed method is to reduce the peak value of common-mode voltage to 42% beside the lower high harmonic components as compared to the conventional SVM method. Hence, the new table is also presented with the new space vector rearrangement. Furthermore, the voltage transfer ratio is unaffected by the proposed method. A simulation of the overall system has been carried out to validate the advantages of the proposed method.
