The discontinuous conduction mode (DCM) boost power factor correction (PFC) converter features zero current turn-on for the switch, no reverse recovery in diode and constant frequency operation. With traditional constant duty ratio control (CDC), the power transfer in each switching cycle exhibits great difference during a half line cycle. Consequently, the peak and RMS values of the inductor current are large; the same goes for the switch and diode. This increases not only the current stress of the power components but also the conduction and switching turn-off loss, and lowers the efficiency of the converter. Introducing third and fifth harmonics into the input current and varying the duty cycle correspondingly can reduce the aforementioned power transfer difference, and provide huge space for the increment of boundary inductance as well. An optimum boundary inductance control concerning limited PF (OBIP) is proposed in this project. For the maximum boundary inductance of the converter within wide input voltage range, the optimum harmonics amounts are analyzed and figured out. The proposed method brings about efficiency improvement, output voltage ripple reduction, and PF increase as well, especially at high input voltages. A prototype has been built and the experimental results are presented to show the validity of the scheme.
