Abstract

A review of techniques to control the lamp wall temperature of fluorescent lamps in luminaires is presented. Past results show large increases in efficacy and light output can be obtained (to 25%) if the lamps can be operated at their optimum lamp wall temperature. It may be judicious to review their cost effectiveness in view of the increased energy cost and advances in the devices technology.
