Abstract

The aim of this paper is to analyze the sensitivity of various compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) which are used in residential and commercial applications during voltage sags. Laboratory tests were performed on different CFLs commonly available in the market. The tests are based on recent testing standards and utilizing a modern industrial power corruptor. For predefined malfunction criterion of zero illuminance condition, sag depth and duration are varied to construct individual voltage immunity curves. Experimental results show that all CFLs are sensitive to voltage sags and vary in a wide range. It also proves that some brands of CFLs having similar power rating are sensitive to both sag magnitudes and its duration.
