Voltage fed single stage converters suffer from two main drawbacks: The efficiency is affected due to the reduced values of maximum DC link capacitor voltage and the power factor is not close to unity. To overcome these drawbacks, a boost type - input current shaping converter, integrated with diode clamped topology is used. Since this converter is a multilevel converter, it can be operated with high DC bus voltage. The power factor is also maintained close to unity. This converter is made to operate with fuzzy logic controller to regulate the output voltage. The fuzzy logic controller is designed and the performance of the ac-dc converter is tested using MATLAB/SIMULINK based closed loop simulation.
