Two stage unity power factor rectifier design

Lister, Christopher D. & Walker, Geoffrey R. (2004) Two stage unity power factor rectifier design. In Australasian Universities Power Engineering Conference (AUPEC 2004), 26-29 September 2004, University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia.


This paper presents the design process utilised for producing a two stage isolated Unity Power Factor (UPF) rectifier. The important yet less intuitive aspects of the design process are highlighted to aid in the simplification of designing a power converter which meets future UPF standards. Two converter designs are presented, a 200W converter utilising a critical conduction controller and a 750W converter based around a continuous conduction controller. Both designs presented were based on the requirements of an audio power amplifier, but the processes apply equally to a range of applications.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
