A technique of achieving both active current distortion compensation and power factor correction is described. A signal corresponding to the phase-corrected distortion component of load current is amplified by a high-frequency asynchronous switching inverter for addition back to the supply current to cancel the load current distortion and to provide power factor correction. Current distortion compensation and power factor correction can be provided either separately or combined to provide total… CONTINUE READING
