Electronic Ballasts Driven by Hybrid Source Using Microprocessor-Controlled Digital Switching Technique

A novel microprocessor-controlled electronic ballast with a class-E resonant inverter for illumination applications is employed to link a photovoltaic (PV)-powered battery energy storage system (BESS) as a main power source with a utility ac power as a complementary source. The proposed strategy aims to control power flow either from the PV-powered BESS or… CONTINUE READING
