Abstract

This paper presents a simple, high power factor single switch electronic ballast for compact fluorescent lamp (CFL). Conventional CFLs on the market are not able to achieve the same power factor performance as the incandescent lamp does, which presents a significant problem for the utility with the gradual widespread use of CFL in the near future. In this… (More)
