A new concept of an interleaved multi phase power factor correction (PFC) rectifier which is operating at the boundary of discontinuous to continuous conduction mode (DCM/CCM boundary) is presented in this paper. DCM or DCM/CCM boundary mode operation of boost PFC topologies inherently avoids reverse recovery losses within the switching diodes which do… CONTINUE READING
