The design, operating principle and analysis of an air condition system (ACS) using with bridge and without bridge
configurations are presented for power quality improvement. The performance of these ACSs is compared on various parameters
such as voltage regulation, input current harmonic spectrum etc to choose the optimal configuration according to user’s
specifications. Both the input converters are designed in discontinuous mode to for simple control and well as inherent power
factor correction. The observed performance of both the ACSs is well within the set guidelines of international power quality
