Sparse Matrix Converter  Overview
Characteristics of the Sparse Matrix Converter are
 QuasiDirect ACAC conversion with no DC link energy storage elements
 Sinusoidal input current in phase with mains voltage
 Zero DC link current commutation scheme resulting in lower modulation complexity and high reliability
 Low complexity of power circuit / power modules available
 UltraSparse Matrix Converter, does show very low realization effort, in case unidirectional power flow can be accepted (admissible displacement of 30° the input current fundamental and input voltage, as well as for the output voltage fundamental and output current), accordingly, a possible application area would be variable speed PSM drives of low dynamics.
Possible fields of application
 AC drives (e.g., mechanical integration of converter and machine)
