In Part 1 of this three-part series, we discussed the importance of a well-engineered PCB ground plane for LED drivers, so the ground plane can be effective in managing disturbance energy generated internal and external to the driver. In Part 2, we examined the basic grounding deficiencies in electrical panels, which increase the likelihood of facility-generated disturbances that cause damage to LED drivers on lighting branch circuits. In this third and final part, we’ll look at how
Ground Planes for LED Drivers — Part 3 of 3
Strategic PQ monitoring can help identify disturbances that cause premature failures of digital-based LED drivers.
