Totem-Pole Bridgeless PFC (Diode Rectification)


It consists of an inductor for boosting, a switch with a totem pole connection for switching at higher frequencies, and a switching diode for lower frequencies. The switch acts as a boost converter when the input voltage is positive and negative half cycle respectively. The totem pole structure solves the recovery loss problem of rectifier diodes.


- Single stage PFC
- Low frequency leg with FRDs for reduced costs
- Efficiency higher than 98.5%
- Frequency from 48 to 150 kHz
