CAUTION: This equipment operates at high voltages and currents which can result in hazardous electrical shock. Please make sure you understand and follow all necessary safety precautions prior to purchasing and operating.
The High Voltage Bridgeless PFC Developer's Kit uses a Piccolo microcontroller to control a 300W high efficiency BRIDGELESS PFC stage. Additions to this EVM include a fast Feed Forward (FF) control loop based on half cycle RMS measurement of the AC line. This control loop offers designers a faster response to input voltage transients without sacrificing Power Factor. This EVM is designed to operate off a universal ac line input of 85V to 265V and provides a regulated 390V dc output, with the option to power the digital circuitry from an external power supply. This kit can be used as a stand-along PFC development kit or in conjunction with the complimentary secondary side TMDSHVRESLLCKIT or TMDSHVPSFBKIT evaluation boards to build a complete PFC correct AC to high efficiency DC topology. The kit includes isolated USB JTAG emulation. Software and hardware documentation for the kit are included in controlSUITE.
Power Conditioning (also known as Active Power Filtering) can be implemented on this kit with proper configuration and minimal software modifications.
