Abstract

This paper proposes a boost power factor correction (PFC) circuit with different cores. Inductors are critical components in power electronic circuits; accordingly, reducing the volume and enhancing efficiency are essential. It is well-known that magnetic elements have great influence on the power density, cost and performance of circuits. In this work, cores were chosen to compare and analyze such characteristics and the related influences on the circuit. In doing so, 3-D finite-element analyses for the exemplary inductor are focused on. The obtained experimental results confirm the adequacy of the analysis from a 600 W universal line input PFC circuit, a switching frequency of 65 kHz and an input current ripple lower than 25%.
