Tematyka publikacji dotyczy problemu generowania wyższych harmonicznych prądu przez kompaktowe fluorescencyjne źródła światła. W opracowaniu przeanalizowano zmiany poziomu harmonicznych prądu generowanych przez tego typu odbiorniki w sytuacji gdy zasilano je napięciem sinusoidalnym i odkształconym. Do generacji przebiegów napięcia zasilającego w trakcie badań Kwykorzystano, stabilne programowalne źródło zasilania NetWave firmy EMTest. Uzyskane dzięki temu urządzeniu napięcia miały stabilne niezmienne parametry w czasie. trwania badań.
The problem of generation of current higher harmonics by compact fluorescent light sources is described in this paper. The above-mentioned light sources were supplied by a sinusoidal voltage with THD equal to 0.1% then by a distorted voltage with THD equal to 6.58%. Both voltages were generated by a NetWave device from the EMTest. Such equipment guarantees the stable parameters during tests. The compact fluorescent lamps (9 W of nominal power) were used in the conducted tests. They were from three different manufacturers marked as A, B and C. The specifications of the tested lamps are presented in Tab. 1. The characteristic of the examined fluorescent lamps was included in the paper for two cases. In the first one, each lamp was supplied by a sinusoidal voltage. The obtained results are presented in Tabs. 2 and 3 as well as in Fig. 4. The next step was group operation of lamps (A1, A1+A2 and A1+A2+A3) manufactured by the same A factory and (A1+B1+ C1) manufactured by A, B and C factories. The results of investigations are presented in Tab. 4 and Figs. 5 and 6. In the second case, the same configurations of fluorescent lamps were supplied by a distorted voltage. The results are illustrated in Tabs. 5, 6 and 7 as well as in Figs. 7, 8 and 9.
