A dynamic power factor corrected resonance power supply employing a single high-speed gate-turn-off (GTO) thyristor is presented. Included is a description of the modes of operation and the design and evaluation of a 300 W, 80 kHz prototype model. Computer simulation of the prototype circuit is also discussed. An assessment of the possibility of using the converter for low-voltage applications is presented.<>
