Flyboost Power Factor Correction Cell And Its Applications In Single-Stage Ac-Dc Converters
A novel power factor correction (PFC) cell with Direct-Power-Transfer (DPT) concept, called flyboost, is presented. This PFC cell combines power transfer characteristics of conventional flyback and boost topologies. Based on the proposed flyboost PFC cell, a new family of single-stage (S2) topologies is derived, and an example converter is experimentally verified with a 150W/28V prototype. While still achieving high power factor (above 0.97) and tight output regulation. The flyboost PFC cell helps improve the converter's efficiency by 3-5% over conventional converters.
