This paper proposes a dual mode used to control a single phase soft switching boost power factor correction Converter (PFC) developed with a new active snubber circuit. The soft switched boost power factor correction converter has merits of less voltage and current stresses, improved efficiency and reduced switching losses. Thus the cost and complexity of the converter is reduced. The dual mode controller combines both continuous conduction mode (CCM) and critical conduction mode (CRM). The simulation results declare high efficiency and optimum power factor for wide range of varying loads.
