This paper explores a new constant pulse width switching (CPWS) strategy for Matrix converter utilizing all valid switching vectors. The method distributes voltage vectors with respect to minimum computed error. The important features of the technique include superior over modulation performance, inherent mitigating effect of unbalance at the input and constant pulse width switching (CPWS) leading to lower switching stresses. In this paper, under distorted input voltage conditions, behavior of the Matrix converter controlled by CPWS is analyzed. This proposed PWM algorithm is verified by MATLAB Simulation and hardware experimentation on laboratory prototype.
