Most electronic and electrical appliances such as radio, televisions, computers, etc. uses DC supply internally. This is done by converting the source supply (single phase or three phase) into DC supply. The internal DC supply source makes the load compatible with its external power source. The presence of non- linear loads results into low Power Factor operation of the power system. Several techniques are adopted for Power Factor correction and harmonic reduction technique few of them have gained greater acceptance over the others. In this paper some of the bridgeless power factor correction boost converters are proposed which results in improved power factor and reduced harmonics content in input line currents as compared to conventional boost converter topology. In addition the bridgeless Power Factor correction boost converter is proving to have less conduction losses and has higher efficiency.
