A novel control strategy based on predictive control is presented for continuous conduction mode boost converter which operates as a power factor correction. In the proposed algorithm two horizons for the behavior of the circuit are predicted which improves the total harmonic distortion, mainly the low frequency harmonics. The algorithm doesn't need elaborating calculations therefore, implementation of the controller using low price processor is feasible. Moreover, an extra horizon of the prediction leads to expansion of the calculation time. Reduction of the harmonic distortion of the input current and improvement of the power factor have been demonstrated on an isolated boost PFC converter.
