This Paper proposes a novel conversion scheme of switching patterns for three-phase to three-phase matrix converters. The conventional virtual indirect conversion method is equivalent to PWM technique via an ordinary PWM rectifier/inverter, offering the advantage that no complicated specialized control is required. On the other hand, 6 of 27 switching patterns cannot be used in this method, because the inputs and outputs are always connected by way of the virtual DC link that is composed of 2 lines. This paper therefore defines the direct space vectors that can express the all 27 switching patterns and utilizes the geometric relationship of direct space vectors so that all switching patterns can be converted from other arbitrary vectors. This conversion scheme also allows the duty factor conversion with simple calculation by utilizing the duties of the virtual indirect conversion approach. In particular, the above-mentioned 6 switching patterns that have been restricted can be fully utilized for reducing output voltage harmonics, switching losses and common-mode voltages. The validity of the proposed conversion method is proven from the experimental results compared with a conventional virtual indirect method.
