This paper presents a magnetic integration approach that reduces the number of magnetic components in a power supply by integrating magnetic components in two conversion stages. Specifically, in the proposed approach, a single transformer is used to implement the continuous-conduction-mode boost power-factor-corrected (PFC) converter and the dc/dc flyback converter. The integrated boost and flyback converters offer soft switching of all semiconductor switches including a controlled di/dt turn-off rate of the boost rectifier. The performance of the proposed approach was evaluated on a 150-kHz, 450-W, universal-line range boost PFC converter with 12-V/2.2-A integrated stand-by flyback converter.
