Conventional power factor correction (PFC) single-ended primary inductor converter (SEPIC) suffers from high conduction loss at the input bridge diode. To solve this problem, a bridgeless SEPIC converter with ripple-free input current is proposed. In the proposed converter, the input bridge diode is removed and the conduction loss is reduced. In addition, the input current ripple is significantly reduced by utilizing an additional winding of the input inductor and an auxiliary capacitor. Similar to the conventional PFC SEPIC converter, the input current in a switching period is proportional to the input voltage and near unity power is achieved. The operational principles, steady-state analysis, and design equations of the proposed converter are described in detail. Experimental results from a 130 W prototype at a constant switching frequency of 100 kHz are presented to verify the performance of the proposed converter.
