Abstract

This paper presents an experimental comparison between a Direct Matrix Converter and an Indirect Matrix Converter in terms of semiconductor devices thermal cycling. Both converters have been designed and built using SiC MOSFETs; the Indirect Matrix Converter has also been tested using a hybrid solution with Silicon IGBT on the input stage and SiC MOSFETs on the output stage.
