Abstract

Presented in this paper is a new strategy for indirect matrix converters that effectively mitigates common-mode voltages and allows an optimal control of source and load currents. This method uses the commutation state of the converter in the subsequent sampling time according to an optimization algorithm given by a simple cost function and the discrete system model. The control goals are regulation of output current according to an arbitrary reference and also a good tracking of the source current to its reference, which is imposed in order to obtain a sinusoidal waveform with low distortion. The technique is enhanced by a reduction of the common-mode voltage with an extra term in the cost function so as to avoid early motor winding failure and bearing deterioration. Simulation results support the theoretical development.
