This paper introduces a single-phase digital power-factor correction (PFC) control approach that requires no input voltage sensing or explicit current-loop compensation, yet results in low-harmonic operation over a universal input voltage range and loads ranging from high-power operation in continuous conduction mode down to the near-zero load. The controller is based on low-resolution A/D converters and digital pulsewidth modulator, requires no microcontroller or DSP programming, and is well suited for a simple, low-cost integrated-circuit realization, or as a hardware description language core suitable for integration with other power control and power management functions. Experimental verification results are shown for a 300-W boost PFC rectifier.
