This paper presents a comparative evaluation and design of hybrid current waveshaping methods for single-phase rectifier. The simulation results show that the hybrid method can further lower the input current components and THDi of a single-phase diode rectifier as compared with the three passive current waveshaping method by P. D. Ziogas, Ji Yanchao (improved method-1) and H. A. Kazem (improved method-2) . The relevant input current and voltage waveforms, the input current total harmonic distortion and the input power factor value are derived from the computer simulation or theoretical analysis. A design example is provided and simulation results have been verified on 500 mW experimental models.
