Interleaved critical current mode (CRM) boost power factor correction (PFC) converter is widely employed recently for its high power density. In order to further reduce the volume and the copper usage of the magnetic components, two-phase interleaved CRM boost PFC converter with a coupled inductor is analyzed in this paper. The coupling effects on the input current, the inductor current, the switching frequency and the flux linkage are analyzed separately. If the self-inductances and the magnetic core are the same for both coupled and noncoupled inductors, the number of winding turns of coupled inductor is fewer than that of the noncoupled inductor, which implies a lower cost. Although the input current ripple increases a little since coupling, a reduction in the total volume of magnetic components, including the electromagnetic interference filter and the coupled inductor, is possible if the coupling coefficient is made reasonable.
