- We have proposed the dimming controller using the AC chopper technique. The AC chopper changes the amplitude of the input source voltage with the same frequency. The conventional dimming controller is operated by controlling voltage phase with the triac. It has bad characteristics of the input current THD and the input power factor. But the dimming controller using the ac chopper technique has a low current THD and a good power factor. The developed dimming controller is consist of the IGBT and the low pass filter. The system is operated by the variation circuit of the input source voltage and the microprocessor.
