Matrix converters are a well-known class of direct AC-AC power converter topologies that can be used in applications in which compact volume and low weight are necessary. For good performance, special attention should be paid to the control scheme used for these converters. Model predictive control strategy is a promising, straightforward and flexible choice for controlling various different matrix converter topologies. This work provides a comprehensive study and detailed classification of several predictive control methods and techniques, discussing special capabilities they each add to the operation and control scheme for a range of matrix converter topologies. The paper also considers the issues regarding the implementation of model predictive control strategies for matrix converters. This survey and comparison is intended to be a useful guide for solving the related drawbacks of each topology and to enable the application of this control scheme to matrix converters in practical applications.
