High-Efficiency Lighting Components

Energy Efficiency and Lighting Components

A number of lighting system components are available for installation in research laboratories. This section will review the various lamps, ballast, and fixtures that are typically utilized to provide general space illumination, with particular attention to the efficacy of specific lamp and ballast combinations. Components designed to provide task lighting will also be examined, including discussions of the relative efficiency of various products. [Catone, 2001]

According to Eley et al. (1993) ref145,

There are three primary means of improving the efficiency of a fluorescent lamp-ballast system:



Electronic ballasts
