The Vienna rectifier power topology is used in high power three phase power factor (AC-DC) applications such as off-board electric vehicle (EV) chargers and telecom rectifiers. This design illustrates a method to control the power stage using C2000™ microcontrollers. This design uses an HSEC180 controlCARD interface and and the software supports C2000™ Delfino™ F2837x series and Piccolo F28004x series of microcontrollers.
