High Brightness and High Voltage Dimmable LED Driver for Advanced Lighting System
MetadataShow full item record
In energy efficient system designs, LED lighting leads to reduction in global energy demand. This paper proposes a high brightness, high efficiency, dimmable LED driver based on linear current regulator technology for DC grid distribution systems. The proposed driver has excellent characteristics like highest lumen per watt, long lifetime, high reliability, compact, low cost, both environmental and user friendly which makes it suitable for lighting applications. Steady state and small signal model of the proposed driver are performed which helps in minimizing ground current and accurate compensator design, respectively. These two modelling approaches result in the optimization of both footprint and cost of the driver. The performance of the proposed 20W driver is modeled using real-time simulation in spice software. Experimental prototype is developed to validate the performance of the proposed driver for different dimming levels and achieves a maximum efficiency of 97%.
