This paper proposes a highly power-efficient light-emitting diode (LED) back-light power supply for liquid crystal display (LCD). The proposed converter integrates the power factor correction (PFC) circuit with the dc–dc converter. It provides an isolated dc voltage without using any full-bridge diode rectifier. Conduction losses are reduced by eliminating the full-bridge diode rectifier. Switching power losses are also reduced by achieving zero-voltage switching (ZVS) operation of power switches. By reducing power losses, the power efficiency of the LED back-light power supply can be improved. The experimental results are presented to verify the feasibility of the proposed converter for a 100 W LED back-light power.
