Due to their advantages, poly-phase (more than three-phase) motor drive systems are becoming more popular and get more applications. This paper introduces the detailed analysis and implementation of a three-to-five-phase matrix converter (FPMC) feeding both inductive and five-phase induction motor (FPIM) loads. The control of this converter is based on an indirect space vector modulation (ISVM) scheme. It models the converter as two independent stages perform rectification and inversion process. The analysis and simulation model of the converter were carried out. The model was used during designing of the converter prototype. The implemented converter was based on discrete semiconductors. The maximum voltage transfer ratio of this converter is about 79%. A FPIM has been designed and implemented. A laboratory system was built based upon digital signal processor (DS1104). Simulation and experimental results are given to confirm the theoretical approach.
