Abstract

This paper presents the analysis and design of a three-phase high power factor rectifier, based on the dc-dc single-ended primary-inductance converter (SEPIC) operating in discontinuous conduction mode, with output voltage regulation and high frequency isolation. The input high power factor is naturally attained through the operational mode without the use of current sensors and a current control loop. To validate the theoretical analysis, a design example and experimental results for a 4-kW, 380-V line-to-line input voltage, 400-V output voltage, 0.998 power factor, 40-kHz switching frequency, and 4% input current total harmonic distortion laboratory prototype are presented, considering two distinct modulators. In addition, experimental results for the output voltage closed-loop control are presented.
