BRIDGE. A building constructed over a river, creek, or other stream, or ditch or other place, in order to facilitate the passage over the same. 3 Harr. 108.
     2. Bridges are of several kinds, public and private. Public bridges may be divided into, 1st. Those which belong to the public; as state, county, or township bridges, over which all the people have a right to pass, with or without paying toll these are built by public authority at the public expense, either of the state itself, or a district or part of the state.
     3. - 2d. Those which have been built by companies, or at the expense of private individuals, and over Which all the people have a right to pass, on the payment of a toll fixed by law. 3d. Those which have been built by private individuals and which have been dedicated to public uses. 2 East, R. 356; 5 Burr. R. 2594; 2 Bl. R. 685 1 Camp. R. 262, n.; 2 M. & S. 262.
     4. A private bridge is one erected for the use of one or more private persons; such a bridge will not be considered a public bridge, although it may be occasionally used by the public. 12 East, R. 203-4. Vide 7 Pick. R. 844; 11 Pet. R. 539; 7 N. H. Rcp. 59; 1 Pick. R. 432; 4 John. Ch. R. 150.

Interestingly, the bridgeless totem-pole PFC has been around for many years though was unusable with Si MOSFET's slow reverse recovery body diode and technical challenges prevented its widespread use.

The CPW power splitter is bridgeless and consists of one CPW-to-slotline T-junction and two slotline-to-CPW transition structures; the characteristic impedance of CPW and slot feeding lines is set to 50 [OMEGA] and 100 [OMEGA], respectively.

In existing literature, charger research mainly focuses on three-phase converter control and the power flow is mostly unidirectional [16,17,18], In [18], AC Voltage Sensorless control is studied for the control of a bridgeless power factor correction AC-DC converter.

Bermond, Jackson and Jaeger [2] proved that every bridgeless graph has a cycle 7/4-cover (i.e., a collection of 7 cycles, that cover every edge at least 4 times), and Fan [11] proved that it has a 10/6-cover.

In order to improve efficiency of the traditional PFC converter, an effective method named as bridgeless PFC technology without front-end bridge rectifier is proposed [3, 14, 15].
