Efficient MCU-Controlled High Power PFC with Two-Phase Current Modulation


The efficiency of High Power (3 kW and above) AC-DC converters featuring Power Factor Correction (PFC) is an important factor affecting many aspects of design, including heat dissipation, overall physical dimensions, and type of cooling. Economic considerations impacting customers also play a role in design development. Technological solutions based on Digital Control architecture, along with high power discrete components from IXYS, help increase the efficiency of high power AC-DC converters with PFC.
