A High Power Factor Rectifier Based on Buck Converter Operating in Discontinuous Inductor Current Mode
Abstract: By adding a suitable LC filter to the input of a Buck converter, a high-power-factor buck converter is proposed. The converter can operate in the discontinuous-output-current mode operation. A Buck converter in this operation mode features simple control as the constant duty cycle PWM used. The operation condition of the converter is studied. The validity of analysis is verified by Simulation and Experimental results.
