Abstract: This proposed research aims to design a Z-Source Matrix converter (ZSM) for wind energy conversion system of 2.5 kW Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator (PMSG). The main objective of this research is to reduce the power loss during low wind velocity and reduces the Total Harmonic Distortion (THD). The proposed Z-source matrix converter is to reduce the power loss and THD by varying frequencies through various PWM techniques. In proposed research, it also focus on ZSM converter parameters like load frequency, load voltage and THD levels are analyzed for various wind velocities with PWM techniques. In connection to, the proposed research also deals with Sine wave Pulse Width Modulation (SPWM), Space Vector Pulse Width Modulation (SVPWM) and Selective Harmonic Elimination Pulse Width Modulation (SHE PWM) to validate the analysis of ZSM.
