Thermal design is one of the most important issues in the development of compact self—ballasted fluorescent lamps as the demand for small yet powerful lamps is mounting. This paper proposes a simulation method that is based on a thermal network model for which a set of equations are developed. Some of the coefficients of the thermal network equations were determined experimentally using a simulated model lamp. The calculated temperatures are in good agreement with the measured temperatures. The work illustrates the usefulness of the proposed methodology in the design of compact self—ballasted fluorescent lamps.
