Abstract

This project proposes an integrated Boost-Buck converter to correct power factor at the front end of the AC-DC converter module. Circuit topology integrates boost and buck converter. Power factor correction is taken care by boost converter and DC output regulation is taken care by buck converter. With this proposed topology zero voltage transition is made in the circuit naturally without use of any auxiliary circuit or switch. MATLAB software is used to carry out the simulation work. A low voltage prototype is done for testing the performance in the open loop.
