High Efficiency Bridgeless PWM CUK Converter With Soft Switching Technique

High efficiency bridgeless single-phase ac-dc PWM cuk converter with soft-switching (ZVS) technique is proposed. This paper emphasizes more on the converter efficiency. The conduction losses and input current harmonics of the proposed converter is very less due to the absence of the input diode bridge and also during each switching cycle, only two semiconductor switches are present in the current path unlike other conventional Cuk converters.Soft switching (ZVS) technique is applied by using an auxiliary circuit to improve the efficiency of the proposed converter. Output voltage regulating control technique is provided to regulate the output which also ultimately improves the efficiency. Power factor is almost unity due to less input current harmonics. The circuit configuration, principle of operation, design procedure and simulation results are presented
