%X Recently there has been considerable interest in the use of matrix converter technology for motor drive applications, with particular interest being shown by Siemens, Rockwell and Yaskawa. An introduction to matrix converter technology is given and the suitability and design of matrix converters for industrial applications is reviewed. The potential advantages of matrix converter technology are examined and the factors that have so far prevented commercial exploitation Of the circuit are discussed. The remaining technical challenges are defined and the work in progress to meet these challenges are highlighted.
