Low-Energy Lighting and Power Quality

Low-Energy Lighting and Power Quality

Exploring the effects CFLs, LEDs, halogen, and electron stimulated luminescence lighting have on power quality

Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and some light-emitting diodes (LEDs) present a much greater non-linear load on the distribution system compared to incandescent lights. As the less energy-efficient incandescent lamps continue to be phased out and replaced with new low-energy lighting options, this sometimes comes at the cost of power quality.
