In this paper we represent a comparison between PID and Proportional resonant controllers for matrix converter used for unbalance load application. The simulation has been done in Matlab Simulink. A linear model transfer function of matrix converter has been taken to be control by Proportional Resonant controller and PID controllers. Various parameters are taken to find out the close loop system stability. First PID controller and then Proportional resonant controller checked for close loop system’s responses. Optimal controller has been suggested on the basis of best performance for reference sinusoidal tracking.
