This paper presents work on modeling & simulation of single-phase matrix converter (SPMC) as a frequency changer modulated by the sinusoidal pulse width modulation (SPWM) subjected to passive load condition. The model was implemented using MATLAB/simulink with the SimPowerSystem Block Set. Comparisons with Pspice are made. The insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) was used for the switching device. Safe-commutation strategy was implemented to solve switching transients with sample verification on results.
