© 2014 ACPE. In this paper, a new single-phase single-stage ZCS PFC boost rectifier with reduced switch count is introduced. The efficiency of the proposed converter is improved by eliminating input stage diode-bridge. Moreover, only two active switches are used to permit bi-directional current flow from high-voltage-rail to low-voltage-rail and vice versa. Hence, no auxiliary switch is needed. A resonant inductor and a capacitor are used to make both switches operate at ZCS turn-off and soft turn-on. The proposed converter is developed by using totem-pole bridgeless boost (TPBLB) converter. Standard components are used to prove that the proposed converter is working with acceptable performance compared to other bridgeless boost converters with soft-switching. In addition, a PWM controller is proposed, which combines a conventional average-current-mode power factor correction (PFC) controller, several logic-gates and a phase detector. A detailed analysis of the converter operation and control is supported by simulation results. Finally, a 400 W, 50 kHz experimental prototype is built to verify the theoretical analysis and performance of the proposed converter.
