This paper presents a true bridgeless totem-pole Power-Factor-Correction (PFC) circuit using GaN HEMT. Enabled by a diode-free GaN power HEMT bridge with low reverse-recovery charge, very-high-efficiency single-phase AC-DC conversion is realized using a totem-pole topology without the limit of forward voltage drop from a fast diode. When implemented with a pair of sync-rec MOSFETs for line rectification, 99% efficiency is achieved at 230V ac input and 400 dc output in continuous-current mode.
