A matrix converter interfaces with three-phase ac voltage source, which creates three different virtual dc-link voltages. In this paper, a new pulsewidth modulation (PWM) method for the matrix converter is proposed to generally use these three virtual dc-link voltages. By using the two higher line-to-line voltages as the virtual dc-link voltages, the proposed method can create the identical switching sequences to those created by the conventional space vector PWM (SVPWM) method. Moreover, the proposed method is able to select the appropriate virtual dc-link voltage, according to the PWM purpose and/or load condition. In this paper, the virtual dc-link voltages adjacent to the output voltage reference are introduced to reduce output-current switching ripples. The feasibility of the proposed PWM method was verified by a computer simulation and experimental results. The output voltage and current waveforms produced by using the proposed method can be equal or better than those created using the conventional SVPWM method. Moreover, a new switching sequence that reduces output-current switching ripple can be easily adopted within the proposed PWM method. The harmonic characteristics of output current created using the proposed method are markedly improved over those using the conventional PWM method.
