A new three-phase high power factor rectifier based on Zeta converter is presented. A resonant inductor and capacitor are added to the circuit to create zero-current switching condition for the switch. The circuit is operated in the PWM mode by putting a parallel switch and diode in series with the resonant capacitor. Different operating modes of the new topology are presented in detail. The simulation results verify the analysis.
