This paper presents a power quality improvement of brushless dc (BLDC) motor using bridgeless canonical switching cell converter. Single voltage sensor is used to achieve unity power factor at ac mains where the proposed BL-CSC converter is operating in discontinuous inductor current mode. Single voltage sensor is used for dual objectives of voltage control as well as speed control. Moreover, the proposed bridgeless configuration is designed for reducing conduction losses due to partial elimination of DBR (diode bridge rectifier) at the front end. Power quality improvement isanalysedat ac mains as per PQ standard IEC 61000-3-2 for a wide range of speed control and supply voltages.
