The Matrix Converter stands as an alternative in power conversion by directly connecting input terminals with output through bidirectional switches. It has low higher order harmonics as well as no sub-harmonics. Different modulation methods are available for matrix converter like space vector modulation method.  Direct and indirect space vector modulation methods are chosen here for the analysis of switching patterns of a three phase matrix converter.  Here, the effectiveness of two modulation methods is simulated in Matlab environment.
