Reduced Size Single Switch Power Factor Correction Circuit
active power factor correction (APFC), AC - DC converter, total harmonic distortion (THD)
This article presents a new design of active power factor correction (APFC) circuit that can be used in single phase rectifiers. The proposed circuit provides almost a unity input power factor (PF) which contributes significantly in reduction of the total current harmonic distortion (THDI) as it eliminates the third harmonic component effectively from the input current. The most important attribute of this circuit is the small size and numbers of components (one switch, small size (L
