The conventional two-stage non-isolated driver for high-power light-emitting diodes (LEDs) is composed of a power-factor-correction (PFC) converter with a non-isolated flyback converter for regulating the output voltage/current for supplying LEDs. However, large numbers of circuit components are required and the total efficiency is limited because of two-stage power conversion. This study proposes a high-power LEDs driver based on a single-stage topology. The presented driver combines a buck-boost PFC converter with a non-isolated flyback converter with two output windings connected in series into a single-stage power-conversion circuit. The proposed driver offers high power factor, high efficiency, low total-harmonics-distortion (THD) of input utility-line current, cost-effectiveness and a constant-output voltage along with limited-output-current control scheme. Finally, a prototype driver is developed and tested in order to supply a 100 W LED light bar module with universal utility-line input voltages for indoor or outdoor general lighting applications. Operational analysis, design equations, a design example and experimental results provided by examining three LED light bar modules demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed circuit.
