In this paper, a high frequency and soft-switched AC/DC rectifier employing a series-type resonant circuit is proposed to obtain the sinusoidal AC line current. Using the proposed rectifier, the high power factor and low harmonic currents are obtained in the AC line. Furthermore, several advantages such as the high power density and wide output voltage range can also be available. To regulate the output voltage of the proposed circuit, the digital proportional-integral (PI) controller is used whose sampling time corresponds to the zero-crossing point of the AC line voltage. Including this controller, the model for the closed-loop system is developed in order to examine the stability and dynamic characteristics. With this model, the gain of the PI-controller is determined by the pole assignment technique and the closed-loop dynamics is investigated by the root locus plots. A good agreement is made between the simulated and experimental results
