The research of the induction motor based on matrix type frequency converter which is the combination of the virtual active front end and virtual autonomous voltage inverter with direct control by the method of space vector modulation was discovered. The researches were simulated by the method of mathematical simulation program Matlab/Simulink. The results of simulation the output voltage and current of the matrix type frequency converter at different output frequencies, produced by harmonic analysis of the output voltage of the matrix converter were shown.


Matrix type frequency converter, induction motor, autonomous voltage inverter, active front end, space vector modulation.
