My customer would like to use this as a PFC chip at the front end of a design. They want to know if there is any limitation of using the chip from the power perspective on a single phase? Specifically they're wanting to know can they use it for a 1 horsepower application and a 3 horsepower application. The datasheet quotes “The controller is suitable for systems in the 100 W to >2 kW range over a wide-range universal ac line input.”, and since 3 HP is about 2.2kW, and with factors into account, they believe the input power will be 2.5kW and just want to make sure it'll work since 2.5kW is not really specified (how far above 2kW can this part support)?
