Constant Power supply required for the microcontroller and the driver is provided using separate DC source. When the integral value of Vo reaches the Vref ,the comparator changes its state from low to high which is indicated by a short pulse as shown in the graph. The prototype of a typical converter is shown ofc. Options for accessing this content: This method provides greater response and rejects input voltage perturbations.

Here Vo is the output voltage obtained across the two capacitors C1and C2. Among these topologies, the bridgeless boost does not require range switch and shows both simplicity and high performance.

Here Ts is the time period of one switching cycle. Bridgelesss voltage doubler circuit combines both the rectifier and power factor correction circuit to a single circuit, the output of which is double the voltage produced by a single buck converter [3] used as pfc circuit. The output of the integrator is compared with the control reference in real time using a comparator. Switch mode power supplies without power factor correction will introduce harmonic content to the input current waveform which will ultimately results in a low power factor and hence lower efficiency.

The simulink model of the bridgeless buck converter is shown below. This drop of efficiency at low line can cause increased input current that produces higher losses in semiconductors and input EMI filter components.

Without the input rectifier bridge, bridgeless PFC generates less conduction loss as compared to the conventional PFC. Figue shows an OCC controller [2] for controlling a bridgeless buckconverter.

The bridgeless voltage doubler buck converter configuration has been studied. If the power supply voltage implemeentation changed, for example by a large step up, tecchnique duty ratio control does not see the change instantaneously since the error signal must change first.


Each converter is operating during positive and negative half cycle respectively. A large number of switching cycles are also required to attain the steady state.

One Cycle Control of Bridgeless Buck Converter

Since the switched variable always follows the control reference the output voltage is independent of all input voltage variations. One-Cycle Control method [2] reject input voltage perturbations in only one switching cyclee and follow the control contgol very quickly. Also it has relatively output voltage, typically in the V range. The two inductor topology can be also replaced by using a single inductor at the middle so that same inductor can be made common to both the buck converters operating at positive and negative half.

This cyclw can be solved by using bridgeless converters to reduce the conduction losses and component count. This circuit generates the output voltage which is double than a conventional buck implemengation since it is having two buck converters operating in a complete cycle. The PWM control method which was already used for controlling contrrol switching has been studied and analysed in this paper using suitable waveforms.

This circuit consists of two buck converters connected in parallel in series out manner. In this paper ,a new control method called One Cycle Control is used for controlling the buck converter during both half of supply voltage. Power Electronics Europe, No. The output voltage V0 is fed to the integrator. This circuit also act as a voltage doubler circuit whose output voltage is greater than a single buck converter. Usiny output obtained is amplified and is fed to an integrator with reset.

When this condition is reached the switch is turned off till the starting of the next switching cycle and this process repeats for both positive and negative half. Any change in the input voltage must be sensed as an output voltage change and error produced in the output voltage is used to change the duty ratio to keep the output voltage constant.

Analysis and design of a voltage doubler bridgeless buck converter is performed during the course of on and hardware implementation of a prototype was done during this period. When the integrated value of the technkque becomes equal to the control reference, the transistor is turned OFF and the integration is immediately reset to zero to prepare for the next cycle.

A prototype of voltage doubler buck converter generating a dc voltage of 12V operating at a switching frequency of 65kHz is developed.


The buck converter operating during positive half-cycles of line voltage Vac consists of a unidirectional switch comprising of diode Da in series with switch S1 freewheeling diode D1filter inductor L1 and output capacitor C1. G1 and G2 shows the gating signals generated by the one cycle controller which is used to control the switching operation of S1 and S2. Efficiency is further improved by eliminating input bridge diodes in which two diodes carry the input current.

Therefore, one cycle control gives an attractive solution for the bridgeless PFC circuit.

The error signal thus obtainedand saw tooth waveform is given as input to the comparator where it is compared is compared to generate the PWM signal for the switch. As long as the area under the diode-voltage waveform in each cycle is the same as the control reference signal, instantaneous control of the diode-voltage is achieved.

This method jsing a non linear control technique to control the duty ratio of the switch in real time such that in each half cycle the average value of the chopped waveform is made equal to the reference value. In each cycle, the diode-voltage waveform may be different.

Although the circuit structure is simple, the location of the boost inductor on the AC side makes it difficult to sense the AC line voltage and inductor current. This means that it has slow dynamic performance in regulating the output in response to the change in input voltage. The implemenation triggers the RS flip-flop to turn ON the transistor with a constant frequency.

One Cycle Control is a new nonlinear control technique implemented to control the duty ratio of the switch in real time such that in each cycle the average value input waveform at the switch rectifier output diode is exactly equal to the control reference.

The hardware implementation for suing prototype is made for 12V dc and PWM technique is used as the switching technique. At the same time EMI results show that the circuit noise is controllable. This technique provides fast dynamic response and good input-perturbation rejection.
