Simulation of Active Power Factor Correction Using Boost Type Converter

  title={Simulation of Active Power Factor Correction Using Boost Type Converter},
  author={Krishna Rao},
With the vast development in the usage of Power electronic devices like Rectifiers (non- linear loads) the current drawn from the line is distorted resulting in a High Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) and Low Power Factor (PF). Hence there is a continuous need for Power factor improvement and reduction of line current harmonics. The most popular topology for Active PFC is a boost converter as it draws continuous input current. This input current can be manipulated by Average current mode (ACM… 

A New Active Power Factor Correction Controller Using Boost Converter

Today power system more and more complex with penetration of switching devices, DG sets, modified control technique, etc because of this, power system is having high amount of harmonics which

Improvement of Active Power Factor Correction Circuit for Switch Mode Power Supply Using Fly Back and Boost Topology

This paper aims to improve the power factor near to unity by using Fly Back Topology and Boost topology to solve the problem of high power component and low total harmonic distortion in the current from the source.

Power Factor Improvement of Nonlinear Load Using Boost Converter with Average Current Control

Simulation results shows that use of boost converter with average current control strategy improves supply side power factor considerably and harmonics in non-linear load are reduced.


Abstract: Power factor is the ratio of active power consumed by the load in to the apparent power flowing in the system. So the power factor improvement is a major challenge in industrial, municipal,



Stabilizing the Average-Current-Mode-Controlled Boost PFC Converter via Washout-Filter-Aided Method

The washout-filter-aided method is proposed to stabilized the boost PFC converter by appropriately choosing the parameters of the washout filter so as to stabilize the P FC converter.
