**Name**: Ballasts

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

**Variables (column)**:

- Type (0=Magnetic, 1=Electronic)
- BEF, Ballast Efficiency Factor (Footcandles/Watt)
- Light Output (Footcandles)
- THD, Total Harmonic Distortion (%)
- Power Factor (watts)
- Temperature of the Lamp (Celsius)
- Temperature of the Ballast (Celsius)

**Possible Uses**: Independent
Sample T Test, Correlation
