This paper proposes a new bridgeless single-stage half-bridge ac-dc converter. The proposed converter integrates the operation of the bridgeless power factor correction (PFC) boost rectifier and the asymmetrical pulse-width modulation (APWM) half-bridge dc-dc converter. The proposed converter provides high power factor and direct power conversion from the line voltage to an isolated dc output voltage without using the full-bridge diode rectifier. Conduction losses are lowered with a simple circuit structure. Switching losses are also reduced by achieving zero-voltage switching (ZVS) of the power switches. The effectiveness of the proposed converter is verified on a 250 W (48 V/5.2 A) experimental prototype.
