Matrix converters (MCs) are AC-AC power conversion topologies widely explored and applied in the industry for their attractive features of sinusoidal input and output currents, considerable size reduction, and reliable operation due to the omission of bulky passive components. Considerable research has made this technology a serious contender to the indirect AC-DC-AC topologies in industrial applications. This paper comprehensively reviews the state-of-the-art MC technology and its prospects. Furthermore, it presents the advancements in the topological structures of direct/indirect MCs and their modulation and control algorithms over the past decade. It also reports the recent progress in multiphase direct/indirect MC structural and control structures. This paper is aimed at providing comprehensive information to the researchers and engineers on MC technology’s current industrial applications and the research scope as the world moves towards AI and digitalization.
