A single inductor three-level boost bridgeless PFC rectifier with nature voltage clamp is proposed. In the proposed converter, the operation principle is quite different from other boost bridgeless three-level converters. The charging stage is presented in the low side while the discharging stage in the high side and vice versa. As a result, nature voltage clamp is achieved. And the slow diodes are `shared'. They operate not only as rectifying diodes, but also as voltage clamping diodes. Besides, only single inductor is required and the device utilization factor is high. Besides, the common-mode(CM) noise is rather low. First, the operational principle are analyzed in detail. Then the performance evaluation and design consideration are presented. Finally, a 1kW experimental prototype is built. The result shows that the efficiency is above 94% at full load under 90V and the maximum efficiency is 98.4%.
