Resistance emulation using one cycle control (OCC) has been used extensively in single-phase full-bridge boost rectifiers. This paper proposes a new control strategy called dual comparison OCC (DC-OCC), which eliminates the limitations of OCC. The advantages of the proposed control strategy is that it ensures the average current is equal to grid voltage scaled by emulated resistance, in each switching cycle. This eliminates issues such as dc offset due to the peak current comparison in OCC. It also ensures that there is no distortion in current when the converter is lightly loaded. It is analytically shown that the proposed DC-OCC does not have the light load instability concerns of conventional OCC. The proposed method is also shown to achieve unipolar pulse-width modulation without sensing the grid voltage resulting in lower effective switching frequency. The proposed control requires only one additional comparator and additional logical elements for implementation. Detailed simulation and experimental studies are carried to validate the proposed control and the high performance that can be obtained.
