To fulfill the standards for harmonics for rectifiers operating in the public grid, power factor correction is mandatory. For single phase rectifiers, the PFC circuits are state of the art, while they are not commonly used for three-phase rectifiers. In this paper, the efficiency of two-level topologies with hybrid Si – SiC and full SiC devices is compared to a hybrid three level T-type solution of a Vienna type rectifier.
