This paper deals with a new family of single-phase AC/AC buck-boost converter based on singlephase matrix topology. The proposed converter provides a wider range of output AC voltage in which the output voltage can be bucked and in-phase/out-of-phase with the input voltage; and the output voltage can be boosted and in-phase/out-of-phase with the input voltage. A commutation strategy is employed to realize snubberless operation. The operating principles, circuit analysis and experimental results based on TMS320F2812 DSP are presented.

In this paper a new family of single-phase Z-source AC/AC buck-boost converter based on singlephase matrix converter topology has been presented. The proposed converter has following fertures:the output voltage can be bucked-boosted and in-phase with the input voltage; the output voltage can be bucked-boosted and out-of-phase with the input voltage. In order to provide a continuous current path, the safe-commutation strategy is employed. Steady-state analysis and experimental results were illustrated. By duty-ratio control, the proposed converter becomes “solid-state transformers” with a continuously variable turn ratio. The proposed converter can be used as dynamic voltage restorer (DVR) to compensate voltage sags and swells in AC/AC line conditioning without any energy-storage devices requirement. The feature which the output voltage is bucked-boosted and in-phase with the input voltage is used for voltage sag compensation. The feature which the output voltage is bucked boosted and out-of-phase with the input voltage is used for voltage swell compensation.
