Microchip Vienna 3-Phase Power Factor Correction (PFC) Reference Design


The MSCSICPFC/REF5 is a 3-phase Vienna PFC reference design for Hybrid Electric Vehicle/Electric Vehicle (HEV/EV) charger and high-power switch mode power supply applications. This reference design achieves 98.6% efficiency at 30 kW output power.

PLECS Model Available

You can use a Piecewise-Linear Electrical Circuit Simulation (PLECS) tool before hardware design to simulate the dynamic behavior of a complex Vienna PFC circuit that uses ideal switches with optional dsPIC33CH Processor-in-the-Loop (PIL).
