Shubham Agre, Prashant Khade, Vaibhav kirange, Prof. Pratik Mahale, "IMPROVING POWER FACTORS BY USING LANDSMAN CONVERTER IN PMBLDC MOTOR", VIVA-IJRI Volume 1, Issue 4, Article 137, pp. 1-5, 2021. Published by Computer Engineering Department, VIVA Institute of Technology, Virar, India.


Brushless DC in most commonly used motors in small scale applications like exhaust fans, Toys etc. The motor is supply by Voltage Source Inverter (VSI) with a dc-dc converter power factor correction circuit (PFC). Performance of dc-dc converters is analyzed and the results are discussed, third converter is best suited converter. By unity power factor the low-cost arrangement are provided. PID Logic Controller is utilized as the Controller for the BLDC motor. The Landsman Converter performs power factor correction and DC voltage control both are in a single controller. PFC converter improve the power quality in AC mains in wide range of speed and input AC voltage. In the PMBLDC Motor the electronic commutator of motor the Voltage Source Inverter is used.
