Energy saving principle of energy saving lamp

The principle of energy-saving lamps -- what is energy saving lamp?

First, let's know what energy saving lamps are. Energy-saving lamp is also called compact fluorescent lamp (CFL lamp for short) which was first invented by foreign manufacturers in 1978. Because of its high light efficiency (5 times as much as ordinary bulb), obvious energy-saving effect, long life (8 times as long as ordinary bulb), small size, easy to use and other advantages, it has been valued and welcomed by people and countries all over the world. In 1982, SL type compact fluorescent lamp was successfully developed in the Institute of Electric Light Source of Fudan University. In the past 20 years, the output has increased rapidly and the quality has been improved steadily. The state has taken SL type compact fluorescent lamp as the energy-saving product (green lighting product) which is the national key development.

The principle of energy-saving lamps -- the working principle of energy saving lamps

When the lamp is connected to the circuit, the thermal effect of the current flowing through the filament causes the incandescent lamp to emit continuous visible light and infrared rays. This phenomenon can be detected when the filament temperature rises to 700K. Because the filament temperature is very high, most of the energy is wasted in the form of infrared radiation. So the lifespan is much shorter, about 2,200 hours, and the light efficiency is about 12 (Lm) per watt. In the past, lighting system only paid attention to quantity, but today it has gradually moved towards refinement, paying attention to saving energy. Because of the extensive use of lighting technology and lighting appliances, people's living standards are generally improved, the demand for lighting equipment is increasing, and the power consumption is also expanding, so the development of high-efficiency and high-quality lighting equipment has begun to be emphasized.

The electronic energy-saving lamp mainly heats the filament of the lamp through a ballast. At about 1160 K, the filament begins to emit electrons (fixed on the filament with some electron powder) which collide with the argon atom elastically. After the argon atom collides, the energy is obtained and then collides with the mercury atom. After absorbing the energy, the filament transits to ionize and emits 253.7 n. The filament temperature of the fluorescent lamp is about 1160 K, which is lower than that of the incandescent lamp from 2200 K to 2700 K. Therefore, the lifetime of the filament is also greatly increased to more than 8000 hours. Moreover, the filament can reach 60 (lm) lumens per watt because it does not have the current-heat effect of the incandescent lamp.

Edison invented the electric light for the convenience of mankind, but it is wrong for mankind to use electricity without restraint, whether for their own sake or for the sake of national resources, we should save electricity, respond to the call of the state, more use of energy-saving lamps. Energy saving lamps, energy saving and emission reduction, small volume and long life, are the key energy-saving products of the state. Energy-saving lighting is mild and sufficient, and it also has a certain effect on our vision protection. We can use energy-saving lighting as a daily use of light.
