This paper presents a study on direct torque control method (DTC) using matrix converter fed induction motor. The advantages of matrix converters are combined with the advantages of the DTC technique: under the constraint of unity input power factor, the required voltage vectors are generated to implement the conventional DTC method of induction motor. However, since the first idea about DTC method using MC fed induction motor was suggested by the current researches just focus on some simulation results and a little un-explicit experimental result is carried out. This paper describes the operation of induction motor under the DTC method in steady-state and transient conditions by the experimental results, the discussion about the trend of DTC method using MC is also carried out. Furthermore, the entire system of matrix converter configuration using 7.5 kW IGBT modules (FR35R12KE3V1) is explained in detail.
