Electronic ballasts consumption is expected to be stronger each year. A number of factors are contributing to this growth rate, including government regulations, lower prices, innovative technologies and new concerns regarding energy efficiency. This quest for efficiency has led the authors to investigate new control methods considering magnetically… CONTINUE READING
