Simulation of a Matrix Converter Fed Drive With Sliding Mode Control

Jan Bauer


Induction machines are among the most widely used electrical-to-mechanical converters in electric drives. Their advantageous robustness and simplicity goes hand-in-hand with complicated control. A converter with a suitable control algorithm is needed in order to withdraw maximum power and dynamics from the drive. In recent times, control methods such as those based on DTC and sliding mode methods have come to the forefront, due to their robustness and relative simplicity.In the field of power converters, new converter topologies are emerging with improved efficiency that pushes the operation limits of the drive. This paper focuses on the development of a control of this kind of strategy for an induction machine fed from a matrix converter.
