This paper proposes a hybrid filter to minimize the power quality impact of matrix converters. Matrix converters inject significant harmonics and nonstandard frequency components into power systems. The hybrid filter is used to reduce the harmonics. A hybrid filter constructed of a shunt active filter and distributed passive filters used for power quality improvement. The proposed approach has been tested and validated on the matrix converter using Matlab/Simulink. The comparison of Simulation results for passive and active filter separately used with matrix converter with the result of matrix converter with hybrid filter is shown to demonstrate the advantages of the proposed scheme.
