Matrix converter open circuit behavior analysis
Zhang, Jiawei and Brunson, Christopher and Bowden, James and Wheeler, Patrick and De Lillo, Liliana (2016) Matrix converter open circuit behavior analysis. In: The 42nd Annual Conference of IEEE Industrial Electronics Society, 24-27 October 2016, Florence, Italy. (In Press)
The matrix converter current recirculating path during an open circuit condition is given in detail with the aim of contributing more expert knowledge to a fault detection system for matrix converter. Simulation results were obtained demonstrating how current recirculates in the matrix converter and the clamp circuit during an open-circuit fault. Healthy output phase currents can be canceled to zero due to current recirculating via the clamp circuit. This result could contribute expert knowledge to a fault detection system to avoid false fault detection and diagnosis.
