High-Pressure Sodium Lamp Control Circuit Providing Constant Peak Current And Color

US Patent:
5367228, Nov 22, 1994
Filed:
Nov 5, 1992
Appl. No.:
7/972036
Inventors:
David J. Kachmarik - North Olmsted OH
Louis R. Nerone - Brecksville OH
Douglas M. Rutan - Cleveland Heights OH
Assignee:
General Electric Company - Schenectady NY
International Classification:
G05F 100
US Classification:

Abstract:
The present invention is directed to a control circuit for providing a substantially constant current to a high-pressure sodium lamp. The control circuit preferably comprises a circuit for providing a rectified voltage signal, and a ballast having first and second contacts to operatively connect the lamp therebetween. The ballast generates and controls a peak current through the lamp based on the value of a controlled voltage. The control circuit further comprises a current sensor to sense the amount of current through the lamp, and a buck-boost voltage control circuit to control the value of the controlled voltage in order to provide a substantially constant peak current through the lamp based on the amount of current sensed by the current sensor. By controlling the amount of voltage seen by the lamp, the buck-boost voltage control circuit controls the amount of current through the lamp, thereby providing constant color temperature regardless of the fluctuations in lamp impedance.

The transformer has an "EE" core with inductor windings on the center legs and gate windings on one of the outer legs. The center leg is gapped to avoid magnetic core saturation and to adjust inductance to a desired value. Coupling can be adjusted further by gapping one or the other of the outer legs.

High Voltage Ic-Driven Half-Bridge Gas Discharge Ballast

US Patent:
5719472, Feb 17, 1998
Filed:
May 13, 1996
Appl. No.:
8/648232
Inventors:
David J. Kachmarik - Strongsville OH
Louis R. Nerone - Brecksville OH
Assignee:
General Electric Company - Schenectady NY
International Classification:
H05B 3702
US Classification:
315224
Abstract:
A ballast circuit for a gas discharge lamp includes a resonant load circuit incorporating a gas discharge lamp and including first and second resonant impedances whose values determine the operating frequency of the resonant load circuit. Further included is a d. c. -to-a. c. converter circuit coupled to the resonant load circuit so as to induce an a. c. current in the resonant load circuit. The converter includes first and second switches serially connected between a bus conductor at a d. c. voltage and ground, and has a common node through which the a. c. load current flows. A feedback circuit provides a feedback signal indicating the level of current in the resonant load circuit. A high voltage IC drives the first and second switches at a frequency determined by a timing signal which predominantly comprises the feedback signal during lamp ignition, whereby during lamp ignition the feedback signal causes the high voltage IC to drive the first and second switches towards a switching frequency which promotes resonant operation of the resonant load circuit.

High Voltage Ic-Driven Half-Bridge Gas Discharge Lamp Ballast

US Patent:
5723953, Mar 3, 1998
Filed:
Sep 19, 1996
Appl. No.:
8/718178
Inventors:
Louis R. Nerone - Brecksville OH
David J. Kachmarik - Strongsville OH
Assignee:
General Electric Company - Schenectady NY
International Classification:
G05F 100
US Classification:
315307
Abstract:
A ballast circuit for a gas discharge lamp of the type including resistively heated cathodes includes a resonant load circuit incorporating a gas discharge lamp and including first and second resonant impedances whose values determine the operating frequency of the resonant load circuit. Further included is a d. c. -to-a. c. converter circuit coupled to the resonant load circuit so as to induce an a. c. current in the resonant load circuit. The converter includes first and second switches serially connected between a bus conductor at a d. c. voltage and ground, and has a common node through which the a. c. load current flows. A feedback circuit provides a feedback signal indicating the level of current in the resonant load circuit. A high voltage IC drives the first and second switches at a frequency determined by a timing signal which predominantly comprises the feedback signal during lamp ignition, whereby during lamp ignition the feedback signal causes the high voltage IC to drive the first and second switches towards a switching frequency which promotes resonant operation of the resonant load circuit. A circuit isolates the feedback signal from the timing signal for a predetermined period of time upon energizing of said converter circuit so as to allow the cathodes to become heated during such period of time, prior to lamp ignition.
