A matrix NxM multi phase converter is a very simple structure incorporating NxM bi-directional switches, able to convert input voltages into output voltages of any shape and frequency. However, commutation problems and complicated control algorithms keep it from being utilized on a large scale. This paper shows a new field of application of the matrix converter, witch is working as a connector between variable speed, multiphase generator and power system.
