In recent years, power converters are used to get high power factor. This paper presents an integrated converter topology for driving HB LEDs which provides high power factor. The integrated buck flyback converter is a single stage, low cost, high power factor AC-DC converter with fast output regulation. The converter is used to provide power factor correction in streetlight application. To obtain high power factor, the buck stage and flyback stage are operated in discontinuous mode. Dimming operation of HB LED is also described. A closed loop is used for enabling the PWM dimming. The simulation studies using MATLAB/Simulink is also presented. Hardware setup of open loop is described.
