This paper details an Integrated Single-stage converter fed sensor-less BLDC motor drive. The drive speed is regulated by altering the DC voltage of the inverter that drives the motor. The switches of the inverter are operated at the line frequency, thereby reducing the inverter switching stresses and enhancing the overall drive system efficiency. The converter works in Dual-discontinuous Current Mode (D-DCM) for Power Factor Correction (PFC) and better power quality at the supply mains. DC voltage control is used adjust the duty ratio of the converter switch. Fast voltage regulation, zero current switching at turn-on and enhanced power factor for a broad range of speeds are the advantages of this converter configuration. The necessity of Hall-Effect position sensors is eliminated by employing a sensor-less technique for brushless dc motor commutation. This reduces the dimensions, volume and expenditure of the motor drive and upgrades its overall efficiency. Drive performance is assessed over an extensive span of speeds. A power factor approximating to unity, and enhanced power quality indicators which are adequately within the sanctioned cap of IEC standard 61000-3-2 are obtained.
