Control Techniques for Power Factor Correction Converters

  title={Control Techniques for Power Factor Correction Converters},
  author={Luisa Rossetto and Giorgio Spiazzi and Paolo Tenti}
The aspects regarding control strategies for Power Factor Correction (PFC) converters are investigated. The major control techniques to absorb sinusoidal input currents in boost PFC's are reviewed and analyzed. Their extension to other converter topologies is discussed and some experimental results for a PFC based on the Sepic topology are reported, which allow comparison of converter performance with different control techniques. Lastly, some considerations regarding dynamic operation are… CONTINUE READING
