It offers noticeably lower dc-link voltage than conventional circuits, thus can be used with smaller capacitors to reduce size and cost and achieve high efficiency, while maintaining the power factor. It uses low-cost bi-quadrant switches to replace expensive diode / mosfet, while maintaining a high power factor.
