The AC-DC power factor correction (PFC) converter is a key element for high voltage DC applications. Hybrid resonant bridgeless AC-DC PFC boost converter operating in continuous conduction mode (CCM). This hybrid resonant boost converter has two active switches that operate in pulse-width modulation and hybrid resonant modes of operation. This combined modulation technique is called Hybrid Resonant PWM (HRPWM). This converter with HRPWM features has several benefits. The gates of the two active switches are tied together so,the converter does not need any extra circuitry to sense the positive or negative line cycle operation. The semiconductor devices operate with a voltage stress close to the output voltage. The resonant tank components are relatively small in size and the hybrid resonant mode of operation alleviates the reverse recovery losses for the body diode.The inherent inrush current limiting capabilities improve the system reliability. HRPWM converter connect with different types of gain cell. The HRPWM bridgless AC-DC power factor correction converter is simulated using MATLAB/simulink R2014a software. The converter is controlled using dsPIC30F2010 microcontroller. Hardware is implemented and results are verified.
