Matrix converters are devices that allow the management of bidirectional flows of energy, reduced size, increased useful life and high efficiency in wind schemes. In this paper we present the experimental results obtained after the application of a predictive current control technique for two matrix converters feeding isolated loads. One scheme is based on IGBT technology and the other on SiC-MOSFET technology. The results obtained reflect the correct functioning of the proposals, reaching a current control working up to 2 kW of power. Finally some comparisons in terms of power consumption and total harmonic distortion are presented.
