This paper proposes a highly power-efficient light-emitting diode (LED) back-light power supply for liquid crystal display (LCD). The proposed converter integrates the power factor correction (PFC) circuit with the dc-dc converter. It provides an isolated dc voltage without using any full-bridge diode rectifier. Conduction losses are reduced by eliminating the full-bridge diode rectifier. Switching power losses are also reduced by achieving zero-voltage switching (ZVS) operation of power switches. By reducing power losses, the power efficiency of the LED back-light power supply can be improved. The experimental results are presented to verify the feasibility of the proposed converter for a 100 W LED back-light power.
