Abstract

The proposed line voltage recovery (LVR) and the total harmonic distortion improvement (THDI) technique improve power factor (PF) and total harmonic distortion (THD) over a wide line voltage range in boundary conduction mode controlled power factor corrector (PFC). The LVR detects the input line root-mean-square voltage to generate the digital equivalent code to the THDI for optimizing the THD by tuning the on-time value at different line voltages. In addition, the LVR and the THDI provide a feedforward path to reduce the ripple of the feedback voltage for further improving the THD. Therefore, the PFC controller can keep high PF and low THD over a wide line voltage. Experimental results demonstrate that the peak PF value is 0.998 and the minimum THD is 1.7% by the test circuit fabricated in a TSMC 800-V ultrahigh-voltage process with the universal line voltage range of 90-264 V.
