Power quality is becoming an important issue for electricity consumers at all level of usages. Sensitive equipment and non-linear loads are common in both industrial and domestic environment. Harmonic distortion can result in malfunction of sensitive equipments and generators. Power factor corrected converter is increasingly used in industry to improve input current quality and regulate the output voltage of front end converter. This paper presents a Single Switch Power Quality Converter which
