The control of Power Factor Correction (PFC) circuits is usually based on analog commercial solutions. In this paper we present a digital control for a Flyback AC/DC converter based on a FPGA. The proposed control has been modelled in VHDL and tested in an actual prototype. A direct digital design approach has been used instead of copying an analog control and redesigning it as a digital one. This method allows to take advantage of the digital characteristics not available in analog controls. The results show the feasibility of using digital specific hardware for control in power converters, opening interesting possibilities in power systems.
