This paper presents the operation of Single-Phase Matrix Converter (SPMC) that could synthesize a greater AC output voltage from a given AC supply voltage. Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBTs) are used to implement the SPMC topology while the well-known Sinusoidal Pulse Width Modulation (SPWM) scheme is used as the switching technique to synthesize the output waveform. Simulation model was developed using SimPowerSystem block set (PSB) within MATLAB/Simulink environment to study the behavior of the proposed converter. Results obtained from PSB simulation are compared with PSPICE simulation to verify the results.
