In this paper, a novel single-stage light emitting diode (LED) driver for street lighting applications with power factor corrections (PFC) is proposed. The presented driver integrates a customized bridgeless PFC ac-dc converter with a half-bridge type LLC dc-dc resonant converter into a single-stage conversion circuit topology. The proposed ac-dc resonant driver provides input current shaping, and it offers quality of lowered switching losses to the soft-switching functions obtained on two power switches and two output-rectifier diodes. The proposed model is designed and simulated in software called MATLAB/SIMULATION and the results shows that the performance of the novel single stage light emitting diode driver.
