Integrated Control, Regulated DC Supply with High Power Quality for Automotive Applications 2008-01-2710
The DC power supply is ingredient part in the automotive industries as it has been used as a DC power supplies for a wide range of loads. Meanwhile, it is mandatory for battery charging. These types however, causes many problems such as poor power factor, high input current harmonics distortion and uncontrolled DC voltage.
In this paper, an improved input power factor correction that uses a combined control system consists of two nested loops with a feedback of the DC voltage and input current as long as a feed forward from the output power. The system has been analyzed, modeled, simulated and experimentally verified.
The novel feature of the proposed control scheme resides in fact that it is not only achieve nearly unity power factor with minimum input current total harmonics distortion only but it also introduce superior performance in DC voltage transient conditions.
