Matrix converter allows the direct ac/ac power conversion without dc energy storage links, in this paper matrix converter and its working principles with harmonics in input side is analyzed. A model is proposed to represent the matrix converter, power semiconductors are modeled as ideal bidirectional switches and the Matrix converter is controlled using ANFIS (Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System) combined with optimum Venturini modulation method. This paper deals the method to be utilized to eliminate the harmonics which is present in input side of matrix converter. Simulation for matrix converter system which shows the effectiveness of proposed compensation scheme is discussed with MATLAB simulation results.
