Authors(3) :-Ayyappa Shanjith M, Chinnavel L, Muthumanikandan S

The power electronic converters and systems finds wide, ample and unexampled applications including defense sector, Industrial sector, automotive sector and other sectors. Still Total harmonic distortions and low power factor in power systems are major concerns created by Power converters. There are major impact of using conventional technique Single phase AC-DC conversion using a power semiconductor diode bridge with huge capacitor like as low order harmonics injection into AC power supply, low power factor, high peak current, line voltage distortion, increased electromagnetic interference and various additional losses. In this paper, Single phase AC-DC isolated ZETA converter with one power electronic switch is embraced to subjugate the several issues. By espousing the essential methodology such as Proportional Integral controller with Hysteresis current controller, it will meliorate the overall power factor and efficiency as well as subdue Total Harmonic Distortion and Voltage ripples will be reduced to the desired levels.
