This paper investigates the concept of an isolated small wind power system based on a three-phase generator and a direct ac-to-ac conversion. The ac-to-ac conversion is performed by a matrix converter and thus removing the need of a large smoothing capacitor in the typical rectifier-inverter solution. The paper is briefly presenting the operation for a particular topology of a three-phase to single-phase matrix converter. The control of this conversion ensures system frequency and voltage stability. Simulation results and practical results are presented to validate the frequency and voltage regulation of the isolated power system.
