An impact of the boost diode selection on the overall efficiency of Active Power Factor Correctors
2016 International Conference on Applied Electronics (AE)
The paper focuses on a selection process of boost diodes for Active Power Factor Correctors (APFC) based on the Boost converter. The choice of the suitable boost diode plays crucial role for an efficiency of APFC. The main aim of the paper is devoted to theoretical and experimental comparison of the diodes. We have compared two ultra fast silicon diodes optimized for a Continuous Conduction Mode (CCM), soft-switching ultrafast rectifier and silicon carbide Schottky Barrier Diode (SBD).
