This paper has proposed a new boost rectifier. Adequate input current was obtained by keeping the duty ratio constant without complicated conventional control methods and the improvement of the waveform was increased. With a decrease of distortion up to 12.9[%], the scope of restriction on harmonics was set to 13.0[%]($3^{td}$ harmonics), 1.1[%]($5^{td}$ harmonics) and 0.6[%]($7^{td}$ harmonics), respectively. Because complicated methods of control are avoided, the circuit configuration is simple and practical. In particular, the said effect turned out to be highly efficient in the low boosting ratio range(boosting ratio$({\alpha})=1.25$). The feasibility of these facts has been proven both theoretically and experimentally.
