Review of Three-Phase PWM AC–AC Converter Topologies

  title={Review of Three-Phase PWM AC–AC Converter Topologies},
  author={Johann Walter Kolar and Thomas Friedli and Jos{\'e} R. Rodriguez and Pat Wheeler},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics},
This paper presents first an overview of the well-known voltage and current dc-link converter topologies used to implement a three-phase PWM ac-ac converter system. Starting from the voltage source inverter and the current source rectifier, the basics of space vector modulation are summarized. Based on that, the topology of the indirect matrix converter (IMC) and its modulation are gradually developed from a voltage dc-link back-to-back converter by omitting the dc-link capacitor. In the next… CONTINUE READING
