Present work relates to improved operation of a 3-phase matrix converter using simple modulation strategy. A simple approach for input displacement power factor control is described, which can make the matrix converter as a source or sink of controlled reactive power. Novel feature of this investigation is the study relating to parallel operation of two matrix converters, from the point of view of reduction of input current harmonic, using a simple and reliable control strategy for matrix converter operation. These aspects enhance the possibility of application of matrix converters in grid connected wind energy conversion systems (wind farms).
