A single-phase rectifier with reduced current ripple and power factor correction
In this paper, a high quality single-phase rectifier with reduced ripple of the input current is proposed. the chosen solution has the main advantage of reducing cither the current ripple or the operating switching frequency, by a compensation effect of two imbricated channels, pulsing in opposition phase. The new rectifier topology is presented, with an appropiate control scheme. Simulation of the behaviour with control circuits are presented, together with experimental results.
