The matrix converters are a promising solution in the industrial domain applications, a compact size with high performances and large scale control capability with high quality energy delivery. The integration of MPC (model predictive control) theory based on finite number of control input into drivers led to the development of innovative techniques to improve the control optimality. Through this paper, an indirect matrix converter prototype based on a (MPC) model predictive control strategy with (DPC) direct power control technique has been applied for the control of an indirect matrix converter structure used for WTGS prototype, a novel DSSVM (double sided space vector modulation) technique with an optimized switching sequence solution has been proposed. For the first time in literature the flux variation for the DPC control technique has been estimated using MVF technique. The thermal losses of the rectifier stage have been studied to evaluate the proposed technique. The control part was installed on an FPGA based control unit and the whole system was applied to take the control of a 10 kW WTGS prototype.
