This paper presents a new method for power factor correction with low cost drives. Power factor control is a major role in the improvement of power system stability. Many of the existing systems are expensive and difficult to manufacturer. Nowadays many of the converters have no input power factor correction circuits. The effect of power factor correction circuit is used to eliminate the harmonics present in the system. This type of power factor correction circuit is mostly used in the Switched

This is unhealthy for installations of power system. The proposed embedded system drive is used to reduce the cost of the equipment and increase the efficiency of the system. Experimental results of the proposed systems are included. It is better choice for effective cost process and energy savings.
