Example 35.17: Sliding-Mode Vector Controllers for Matrix Converters

Matrix converters are all silicon ac/ac switching power converters, able to provide almost sinusoidal output voltages with adjustable amplitude and frequency, almost sinusoidal input currents, and controllable input power factor [22]. They have been used in ac drive speed control and are well suited for applications related to power-quality enhancement. The lack of an intermediate energy storage link results in high power density, their main advantage, but implies an input/output coupling that increases the control complexity.

This example presents the design of sliding-mode controllers considering the switched state-space model of the matrix converter (nine bidirectional ...
