%X An inherent problem of single-phase rectifiers is the existence of a pulsating portion in the input power, which pulsates at twice the grid frequency. If this pulsating power is transferred to the DC-link, it causes a significant amount of second-order harmonic at the output voltage. Since in many applications, such a high level of DC oscillation is not acceptable, so the pulsating power must be effectively filtered. A convenient solution to eliminate the output voltage oscillations is to use a capacitor with a relatively high capacity at the rectifier output. Due to the fact that the high capacity capacitors for this application usually have a short lifetime and occupy a lot of space, this solution cannot be considered as a proper one. In this paper, a new active method with the minimum of current and voltage stress is proposed to effectively eliminate the pulsating power and significantly reduce the required capacitance of the output filter. The proposed method is able to reduce the volume of the converter and increase its reliability and power density. The validity and effectiveness of the proposed method are confirmed by extensive simulations in the MATLAB/Simulink.
