|Abstract: ||High-intensity discharge (HID) lighting lamp
systems are widely used in applications that can provide a high light levels are desired for large areas, such as vehicle headlight, industrial and street lighting. Similar to fluorescent lighting systems, all HID lighting systems require a ballast to
operate. Traditionally, magnetic ballast designs were the only choice available for HID lighting systems. Today, high-efficiency
electronic HID ballasts are available that provide improved lighting quality and reduce lighting electricity use by 10 to 30 percent.|
The purpose of this paper is to identify requirements of the ballast interface from the perspective of the HID lamp. This study will generally brief the starting, run-up, and steady state operation of HID lamps on electronics ballasts.
