Name: Ballasts


Abstract: An experiment was conducted to compare the performances of electronic and magnetic ballasts used in fluorescent lighting.


Variables (column):

  1. Type (0=Magnetic, 1=Electronic)
  2. BEF, Ballast Efficiency Factor (Footcandles/Watt)
  3. Light Output (Footcandles)
  4. THD, Total Harmonic Distortion (%)
  5. Power Factor (watts)
  6. Temperature of the Lamp (Celsius)
  7. Temperature of the Ballast (Celsius)


Possible Uses: Independent Sample T Test, Correlation
