In this paper, analysis and design of a three-phase-isolated Cuk-based power factor correction (PFC) converter have been proposed. The proposed converter is operated in discontinuous output inductor current mode to achieve PFC at ac input. This avoids the inner current control loop which further eliminates the sensing of current. This makes the system more reliable and robust. The converter requires only one simple voltage control loop for output voltage regulation, and all the power switches are driven by the same gate signal which simplifies the gate driver circuit. The detailed operation of the converter and design calculations are presented. And also a small-signal model of the converter by using current injected equivalent circuit approach is presented to aid the controller design. The experimental results from a 2-kW laboratory prototype with 208-V line-to-line input voltage, 400-V output voltage are presented to confirm the operation of the proposed converter. An input power factor of 0.999, an input current total harmonic distortion of as low as 4.06%, and a high conversion efficiency of 95.1% are achieved from laboratory prototype. © 1986-2012 IEEE.
