Whitepaper: Reducing Operating Cost with Well-Designed Power Factor Correction
The ecological impact of our technologically-driven society is getting a great deal of attention these days - regularly grabbing press headlines, as well as influencing government policy. The demands being placed on available energy resources continue to rise, and the associated costs keep on spiralling upwards. This whitepaper explores how better implementation of power factor correction (PFC) will enable dramatic improvements in efficiency to be realised. It also discusses the next generation of PFC controller ICs that are emerging to support such endeavours.
