PFC Part 5: Initial test

The moment of truth could be put off no longer 🙂 The PFC was tested at reduced input voltage using a 110V, 100 watt heater as a load.

Complete assembly. Note bunch of extra electrolytic capacitors on output.
Line current waveform looks reasonable. (Using a Fluke current clamp)
Maybe a bit more than 100 watts?
