Authors: Sanjay L. Kurkute, Pradeep M. Patil, Kakasaheb C. Mohite


An optimal control strategy based on simple model, a single phase unity power factor boost converter is presented with an evaluation of first order differential equations. This paper presents an evaluation of single phase boost converter having power factor correction. The simple discrete model of boost converter is formed and optimal control is obtained, digital PI is adopted to adjust control error. The method of instantaneous current control is proposed in this paper for its good tracking performance of dynamic response. The simulation and experimental results verified our design.

Keywords: Pulse Width Modulation (PWM), boost converter, single phase, power factor correction (PFC)
