This paper presents a new control strategy for Power Factor Correctors (PFCs) used to drive High-Brightness Light-Emitting Diodes (HB-LEDs). This control strategy is extremely simple and is based on the use of a standard Peak Current-Mode Integrated Controllers (PCMIC) reducing its cost and complexity in comparison to traditional PFC controllers. In fact… CONTINUE READING
