A flicker-free resonant LED driver with high power factor (PF) and passive current balancing is proposed and analysed in this project. The proposed LED driver are composed a buck power factor correction (PFC) unit and a resonant dc-dc unit by sharing an active switch. Based on this topology, the low output current ripple can be achieved via small voltage ripple on bulk capacitor and fast voltage-mode control loop. By the charge balance for resonant capacitor, the output current of each LED string can be balanced. In a half line cycle, owing to the small voltage ripple on bulk capacitor of pre-stage output, the duty cycle of active switch is almost constant. Therefore, when the inductor current of buck PFC unit operates in discontinuous conduction mode, high PF can be realized. Moreover, as the resonance is existed between resonant capacitor and leakage inductor of transformer, the diodes in resonant dc-dc unit can achieve zero-current turn-off. Thus, the efficiency can be improved.
