3 -3- Marie Curie ECON 2 Summer School, July 2008 Introduction Matrix Converter is a single-stage power converter and represents an alternative to back-to-back converters in cases where size and the absence of large capacitors or inductances are relevant issues. Model Predictive Control has been used in applications related to power converters, generally with modulation techniques.
