This work explores the feasibility of a novel predictive control strategy on a Power Factor Correction system. The proposed control strategy allows a significant reduction of the power losses respect to a classical predictive control strategy working with a fixed execution time Ts. The proposed control strategy operates with a variable execution time Ts, it has been implemented using a low cost hardware platform based on TI(R) TMS320F2812 DSP. The chosen platform is capable to execute a control strategy code with a variable execution time Ts. This operation can be performed by setting in proper manner the timer registers of one of two Event Manager A/B blocks present on the mentioned DSP.
