Abstract
Matrix converters are said to redeem the very well established DClink converter in some fields of application. One general idea behind the matrix converter approach is the absent DClink capacitor which is referred as one reason for the matrix converter being superior to the DClink converter regarding its size and lifespan. On the other hand, the input filter of the matrix converter is said to be larger than the input filter of DClink converters undermining the afore mentioned advantage of the matrix converter concerning the size. In this paper a general approach regarding the input filter design is applied to both converter types to perform a fairhanded filter comparison which also takes into account the parasitic series resistances of the reactances. A first theoretical investigation based on a simplified spectrum is performed for a DClink converter and a matrix converter both designed for 3 kVA apparent output power.
