The circuit described here is a simple PFC controller using the UCC28180 chip from Texas instruments. The controller operates under average current mode control at a fixed programmable switching frequency of 116 kHz. Simple external current and voltage loop compensation, along with advanced protection features, make this controller ideal for server and desktop power supplies, industrial power supplies, and white goods. The module is a flexible and easy-to-use, active Power-Factor Correction (PFC) controller that operates under Continuous Conduction Mode (CCM) to achieve high Power Factor, low current distortion, and excellent voltage regulation of boost pre-regulators in AC – DC front-ends. The controller is suitable for universal AC input systems operating in 100-W to few-kW range with the switching frequency programmable between 18 kHz to 250 kHz, to conveniently support both power MOSFET and IGBT switches. An integrated 1.5-A and 2-A (SRC-SNK) peak gate drive output, clamped internally at 15.2 V (typical), enables fast turn-on, turn-off, and easy management of the external power switch without the need for buffer circuits. Low-distortion wave shaping of the input current using average current mode control is achieved without input line sensing, reducing the external component count.

In addition, the controller features reduced current sense thresholds to facilitate the use of small-value shunt resistors for reduced power dissipation, especially important in high-power systems. To enable low current distortion, the controller also features trimmed internal current loop regulation circuits for eliminating associated inaccuracies. The module requires few external components to create a complete PFC Controller. In the future, we will publish few PFC drivers using this module. Refer to the datasheet of UCC28128 to configure the board as per requirement.
