Thermal modeling and management of the integrated HID ballast

  title={Thermal modeling and management of the integrated HID ballast},
  author={Yan Jiang and Shuo Wang and Fred C. Lee},
  journal={2010 IEEE Energy Conversion Congress and Exposition},
High power density electronic ballast is desired for the High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamps in order to fully utilize the space inside the lamp fixture and reduce the overall size. However, by installing the ballast inside the lamp fixture, the ambient temperature for the ballast will be higher, and combined with the reduced size, the thermal condition for the integrated ballast will be much harsher. Therefore the detail thermal analysis and proper management is a must for the high power… CONTINUE READING
