Abstract—This paper deals with the simulation of Bridgeless PFC boost Converter fed DC drive. The Bridgeless circuit is analyzed, designed and simulated with motor load. Conventional boost PFC suffers from the high conduction loss in the input rectifier-bridge. Higher efficiency can be achieved by using the bridgeless boost topology. In this paper, a systematic review of bridgeless power factor correction (PFC) boost rectifiers, also called dual boost PFC rectifiers, is presented. The circuit has advantages like reduced conductionloss, reduced harmonics and improved power factor.
Index Terms—Boost converter, bridgeless, power factor correction (PFC).
