Power factor improvement of an AC-DC converter via appropriate sPWM technique

Abstract

The power control of a DC load can be achieved via an AC-DC converter consisting of a rectifier bridge and a switching element operating by sPWM technique. The use of such a converter causes a lot of high harmonics at the AC side, which reduce the power factor and distort the grid voltage. Using passive filter in the converter input to avoid the high… (More)
