In this paper, a new three-phase power-factor correction (PFC) scheme is proposed using two single-phase PFC modules. In this approach, the "three" phase input is first transformed to "two" phase by means of a 0.14-pu-rated autotransformer. Two standard single-phase PFC modules are then employed to process the "two" phase power to dc output. Split inductors and diodes are employed to limit interaction between the two PFC stages. Due to cascade operation of two PFC stages, low-frequency (120 Hz)
