This paper describes a three-phase AC/DC power converter involving a simple rectifier topology, which operates in PFC mode. This topology is close to another known, i.e. the VIENNA one. Two coils are involved in each phase. This permits to get a ldquoDouble Boost Effectrdquo and improves the rectifier features. The mains currents are under control of three analog self-oscillating controllers. Simulations and experimental results illustrate the operation of the single and three phase rectifiers.
