In this paper, the passive PFC for vacuum cleaner using single leg SRM is discussed. How to choose L-C parameters to meet both high power factor above 0.95 and IEC1000-3-2 standards is described in detail. In addition, this paper shows that both power factor and harmonic current are dependent upon the motor speed by simulation results using MATLAB. Finally, the experimental results are given to verify the simulation results.
