A novel hybrid approach for direct power conversion (DPC) based on two-stage matrix converter (2-stage MC) topology is proposed, which has practically proven advantages of improved voltage transfer ratio and higher robustness against supply voltage unbalances over the conventional matrix converters (CMC). The hybrid approach also has inherent advantages of the CMC such as: controllable supply power factor, sinusoidal supply currents and no bulky energy storage elements which reduce the life…
