Power quality is becoming an important issue for electricity consumers at all level of usages. Sensitive equipment and non-linear loads are common in both industrial and domestic environment. Harmonic distortion can result in malfunction of sensitive equipments and generators. Power factor corrected converter is increasingly used in industry to improve input current quality and regulate the output voltage of front end converter. This paper presents a Single Switch Power Quality Converter which achieves both power factor correction and output voltage regulation by using only one switch. This paper deals with the design method in the reduction of DC bus voltage stress during light load, by selecting proper boost inductor using Equal Area Criterion (EAC).
