Title:
AN1106, Power Factor Correction in Power Conversion Applications Using the dsPIC® DSC
Name:
AN1106

Description:
The main goal of this application note is to implement Power Factor Correction (PFC) by Average Current Mode Control using a Digital Signal Controller (DSC). Since many applications in the areas of motor control, power control, Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPS), Switched Mode Power Supplies (SMPS) etc demand a stable, regulated DC power source with reduced input current harmonic content and better power factor, power factor correction is a need of the day and no more a matter of choice. Thanks to the family of DSCs (dsPICs) from Microchip which enable the implementation of PFC in addition to the integration of this algorithm onto other applications on a single chip
