Özet

This paper introduces a new soft switched AC-DC boost converter with power factor correction (PFC). In the introduced converter, all devices are turned on and off under soft switching (SS). The main switch is turned on under zero voltage transition (ZVT) and turned off under zero current transition (ZCT). The main diode is turned on under zero voltage switching (ZVS) and turned off under zero current switching (ZCS). Meanwhile, there is not any current or voltage stress on the main devices. Besides, the auxiliary switch is turned on under ZCS and turned off under ZVS. The detailed theoretical analysis of the converter is presented, and also theoretical analysis is verified by a prototype with 100 kHz and 500 W. Also, the proposed converter has 99.8% power factor and 97.5% total efficiency at soft switching operation.
