"In this thesis, based on the existing researches on power factor correction technology, I analyze, design and study the Boost type power factor correction technology, which is applied in the in-board two-stage battery charger. First I analyzed the basic working principle of the active power factor corrector. By comparing several different topologies of PFC converter main circuit and control methods, I specified the research object to be the average current control (ACM) boost power factor corrector. Then I calculated and designed the PFC circuit and the ACM controller applied in the first level charging of EVs. And I run the design in Simulink and study the important features like power factor, the input current waveform and the output DC voltage and the THD and odd harmonic magnitude."
