AbstractCompact fluorescent (CF) products are not recommended for undervoltage use. Nevertheless, power demands are increasing and occasional voltage sags and brownouts may become less avoidable. This paper describes the lighting and electrical performance of eleven different types of CF systems operating at 100, 110 and 120 Vac. Performance parameters include relative luminous efficacy, active and apparent power consumption, harmonic distortion, power factor and flicker index. Economic analysis for the operation of the CF systems at 120V is also provided.
