This paper presents an implementation of the "single-sensor" method for controlling a power factor correction (PFC) circuit. The method eliminates lossy resistive feedback by deriving control variables such as the input and output voltages of the power converter via the switching action of the power MOSFET of the power converter. It can be applied directly(More)
Discharge lamps require high ignition voltage from typically one to several kilovolts for cold-start, but have low on-state voltage of typically 100 V. For discharge arc monitoring purposes, it is difficult or uneconomical to implement voltage sensor to cover such a wide range of voltage. In this paper, a nonintrusive and electrically isolated method, based(More)
