Recently, many researchers has more attention in a single stage AC to DC converter features and DC to DC regulator are extensively used into low power applications. When compared with the two stage conventional method over the Single stage converter has a simple design and utilize only less components. Therefore, this task has been used in this paper as a prposed work of AC–DC single stage converters combine a converter front end with DC–DC back end converter. This proposed work has been improved single stage power factor correction (PFC) converter based on phase-shifted controller for wireless Power applications. The proposed technique employed to develop the improved converter for task of an extensive series of voltage outputs with rippleless outcomes in low frequency, that shows the high essential in battery application and the PFC duty ratio restriction is eradicated. Similarly, DC–DC stage operation are designed in a related way of conventional full bridge phase shifted converter. Accordingly, the proposed technique of improved converter of this paper will achieves better efficiency compared with other conventional techniques and it has been prove more efficient for many Industrial applications, it has been discussed in result section clearly. The experimental results of proposed improved converter proves that it is potential to extend high power single stage converter with good power factor, conversion characteristics and efficiency.
