PAVAS, Andrés; BLANCO, Ana María  and  PARRA, Estrella. Applying FBD-power theory to analysing effective lighting devices' impact on power quality and electric grid efficiency. Ing. Investig. [online]. 2011, vol.31, suppl.2, pp.110-117. ISSN 0120-5609.

Currently the impact of high efficient lighting devices such as compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) and light emitting diodes (LED) is an important concern for the electrotechnical community. This paper makes a contribution towards determining the impact of these devices on electric grid power quality and efficiency, proposed by means of applying FBD-power theory to the currents absorbed by CFLs and LEDs. An analysis of the waveform distortion regarding IEEE standard 519 and efficiency detriment quantification are presented.

Keywords : FBD-power theory; CFL; LED; orthogonal decomposition; efficiency; power quality; Teoría de potencia FBD; CFL; LED; descomposición ortogonal; eficiencia; calidad de potencia.
