Abstract: This work discusses about a digital controller system for reduced effect of chaos and improved power factor of a 1-phase AC-DC converter system. It is shown that, the proposed controller technique is able to suppress the chaos at variable load condition of a boost power factor correction (BPFC) converter. Furthermore, a systematic methodology based on bifurcation diagram from tuning the controller is proposed. To achieve improved power quality in BPFC converter, combination of average and peak inductor current mode control methods are performed. In the MATLAB SIMULINK environment, simulation circuit for the BPFC converter with average current control method is developed to improve power factor. Further, to reduce the effect of chaos produced in converter, peak inductor current mode with delayed feedback control method is adopted. At an output power of 650 W operating at 130K Hz switching frequency, this converter provides Total Harmonic Distortion (THDi ) reduction of 20% and improved Power Factor (PF) of input current compared to other conventional converter. For real time operation of the system, rapid prototyping test is carried out using DAQ (Data acquisition) board NI 6351. The delayed feedback control has a better performance than any other methods proposed earlier.
