5 Energy basics Power versus Energy
Kilowatt (kW) is a measure of power, like the speedometer of your car that records the rate at which miles are traveled. A bigger engine is required to travel at a faster rate. Kilowatt-hour (kWh) is a measure of energy consumption, like the odometer on your car (miles). Energy cost = power (kW) x time (hrs) x price = kWh x $/kWh A 113-watt four lamp light fixture costs about $66 annually when operating 16 hr/day (113 W x 5,840 hr x $0.10/kWh ÷ 1,000 W/kW).

6 Lights do not consume more energy when they are first turned on.
Energy basics Lights do not consume more energy when they are first turned on. Includes high-intensity discharge (HID) lighting. Pay the price for improved energy efficiency! The operating cost over the lifetime of a light fixture can far exceed the original purchase price.

7 Fundamentals of light Lumens—A measure of the perceived power of light. Constant output regardless of distance from source. Foot-candle—One lumen of light distributed over a square foot area. Depends on the distance from the light source. Does not hold for focused fixtures like flood lamps. Can be measured using light meter.

8 Lighting has many metrics.
Lighting comparison Lighting has many metrics. 60-watt incandescent ~ 850 lumens (100 CRI) ~ 14 lpw efficacy 32-watt T8 fluorescent ~ 2,800 lumens (83 CRI) ~ 88 lpw 400-watt metal halide ~ 24,000 lumens (65 CRI) ~ 60 lpw 400-watt high-pressure sodium ~ 45,000 lumens (22 CRI) ~ 112 lpw

9 Incandescent / halogen
90% heat and 10% light (10 to 17 lumens per watt) Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007 establishes higher minimum efficiency standards for incandescent reflector lamps (R lamps). Parabolic Aluminized Reflector (PAR#) lamps BR# (Bulged) and ER# (Ellipsoidal) # —the diameter of the widest part of the lamp in eighths of an inch (R20 = 20/8 = 2.5" diameter) EISA applies to > 2.25 " diameter

10 Incandescent / halogen
Flood lights Beam angle encompasses that part of the beam that varies from peak | brightness down to 50% of that intensity as measured in a plane through the nominal beam centerline. New halogen bulbs offer up to 30% energy savings, instant on, no mercury, 100 CRI, and compliance with EISA 2007.

11 Fluorescent Historical timeline 1838—Michael Faraday’s glow tubes
1850s—Glass-blower Heinrich Geissler 1880s—Alexandre E. Becquerel coated tubes 1893—Nikola Tesla induction tubes 1896—Thomas Edison patented x-ray lamp 1890s—Daniel McFarlane Moore 1901—Peter Cooper Hewitt mercury vapor lamp 1927—Edmund Germer patent 1936—GE’s George E. Inman patent 1938—First commercial fluorescent tubes

12 Fluorescent Nomenclature (FxxT#)
F—fluorescent Fxx—wattage (rapid start) or length (instant start) T- tubular; U—curved/bent Circline—circle T#—diameter in eighths of an inch Ballast Factor (BF)—ratio of output compared to reference ballast (not energy efficiency measure) Affects both watts and lumens Ranges from 0.6 to 1.3 Fluorescent light emission is a chain reaction.

13 Fluorescent T8 Types (Generations) Type Name Watts Lumens CRI

14 Fluorescent Super T8 lamps, with high-efficiency ballasts, are high-lumen (>3000 versus 2,850 standard) and extended life (>24,000 versus 20,000 hours standard) products. Only saves energy when combined with a lower ballast factor ballast. T5 series (good for indirect lighting like suspended lighting). Type Initial Lumens Watts Ballast Factor Fixture Lumens Fixture Watts LPW T8 2,950 33 0.85 2,496 28 89 Super T8 3,200 34 0.78 26 96 Type Initial Lumens Watts LPW Life T5 2,900 28 W 104 24,000 hours T5HO 5,000 54 W 93

15 Fluorescent T8 versus T5 T5s (smaller diameter and shorter) not interchangeable with T8s. Six F32T8s equivalent to four F54T5HO. T5s have lower mercury content than T8s. T5 lumen maintenance better at higher ambient temperatures but worse in cold. Holophane IntelliBay™ & IntelliVue™ Lithonia I-BEAM™ System Source: RPI Lighting Research Center

16 Four-lamp T12 versus T8 Fixtures
Fluorescent Replace existing T12 fluorescent lamps with T8 fluorescent lamps (up to 30% savings). Start modes Programmed start (in series) Long preheat shuts down after start (up to 50,000 cycles). Can be wired in parallel Rapid start (in series) Simultaneous preheat stays on all the time (15,000 to 20,000 cycles). Identified by 2-wires from ballast to each end of lamp. Instant start (in parallel) No-preheat; high-voltage start (10,000 to 15,000 cycles). Identified by 1-wire from ballast to each end of lamp. Not good with occupancy sensors (<30 minute burn). Four-lamp T12 versus T8 Fixtures Lamp Type Fixture Watts Fixture Lumens LPW F32T12 148 9,120 62 F32T8 113 10,600 94

17 Fluorescent Fluorescent ballasts Magnetic (60 Hz)
Core and coil Electronic (20 to 60 kHz) 10% to 15% more efficient NEMA Premium® Ballasts even better All ballasts consume power even without lamps (2-lamp example). Electronic consumes 6 to 12 watts loaded and 3 to 7 watts open circuit. Magnetic consumes 18 to 20 watts loaded and 6 to 10 watts open circuit. Regulatory driver for electronic ballasts (T8 and T5 lamps) No magnetic ballasts manufactured for replacement after June 2010. 2009 DOE Energy Regulations—Beginning July 14, 2012, these regulations effectively eliminate most 4-ft T12, 8-ft (F96) T12 lamps, and 700 series (1st generation) T8 lamps

18 Fluorescent Metal Halide (MH) versus Fluorescent for High-bay
Probe start (PS) MH with low lumen maintenance (<65%) is best target for replacement. EISA2007 imparts higher performance standards for PS MH. The lumen maintenance of metal halides can decrease to 45% during its lifetime, whereas fluorescents maintain 90% to 95% in optimal conditions. Comparison One PS MH with 20,000 EOL lumens at 320 system watts Six F32T8 with 18,000 EOL lumens at 220 system watts Remember—lumen output of fluorescents declines with heat/cold.

19 Fluorescent Compact Fluorescent Lighting (CFL)
You get the same or more light output (lumens) with a 75% energy reduction and over six times the rated life! Up to 9,000 lumen output at 120 watts (PL-H high 4-pin) Energy savings far outweigh difference in lamp price. Power factor is typically 0.6, but power savings far outweighs low power factor. Issue of mercury content can be addressed. Use reflector flood CFLs (R-CFLs) in recessed can lights. Consider aluminum reflector CFL PAR lamps. Globes Candelabra Source: NREL

20 Fluorescent Compact Fluorescent Lighting (CFL) Twister
Single, double (T), triple (TR), quadruple (Q) twin-tube (turns) Integral ballast screw-in Modular external ballast pin-based Gxx where xx is pin center-to-center dimension (G23 has 23mm dimension) G23q where “q” means quad-pin base G23d-x where “d-x” means the number of tubes (turns) 2-pin with integral starter requires magnetic preheat ballast 4-pin (quad) with external starter usually electronic ballast

21 Fluorescent Induction (electrodeless) lighting
High-frequency magnetron microwave power generator, magnetic field coupling device (antenna), and phosphor coated tube. Up to 100,000 hour rated lamp life Lumen maintenance 70% at 60,000 hours Efficacy of 70 to 75 lumens per watt Best applications have high labor cost. Parking garages Cold-storage rooms Inaccessible roadway tunnels and underpasses Illumination of roadway signs and inaccessible advertisement boards Lighting over stairs or escalator wells Open mall atriums or ceilings in "big box" retail areas Pole-mounted luminaires for dusk-to-dawn illumination on a campus Industry, petrochemical, and offshore applications Source: Osram Endura/Sylvania IcetronTM Electrodeless Lamp

22 High Intensity Discharge
Low Pressure Sodium Most energy efficient lighting source Not an arc source, so no glare 0 to 20 CRI High Pressure Sodium Arc source with (20 to 65 CRI) 310 W and 360 W replacements exist for 400 W Electronic ballasts 5 to 20 W versus 50 to 70 W magnetic

23 High Intensity Discharge
Metal Halide Arc source with 60 to 95 CRI Quartz or ceramic transparent tubes Ceramic (polycrystalline alumina—PCA) offers better lumen maintenance, color rendering (95 versus 65 CRI), and color stability. Can operate on HPS ballasts (direct lamp replacement). Smaller Size <150W HID Ballasts Generally 50% smaller in size (3" x 1.3" x 1.1") and lighter weight than standard magnetic ballasts Self-ballasted PAR30LN and PAR38 (1,200 initial lumens) CMH lamps replace 74W and 120W halogen bulbs Source: Osram-Sylvania

26 Solid state lighting Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs)
Electrical current driver circuit instead of ballast. Relatively low lumens per watt (30 to 35 lpw) historically, but now 45 to 60 lpw. Long life; years, not hours. 70% lumen maintenance at 50,000 hours of operation. Frequent switching does not affect rated life for LEDs as it does for fluorescents. Directional nature of LED results in very high luminaire efficacy. Very compact and low-profile. Nothing to “break.” No abrupt failure mode. Source: NIST

27 Solid state lighting Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs)
Instant on (no warm-up time required). Does generate harmonics, but no reported problems. Some built-in surge and noise protection. Expensive initial cost. Heat sensitive. Exit Signs Annual operating costs of $5 compared to $30 to $40 for incandescent or fluorescent. Compatible with battery backup (traffic lights). Source: stock.xchng

28 Lighting controls Occupancy sensors Daylighting
Skylights/lightpipes, clerestory windows, or roof monitors. Energy savings can range from about $0.25/ft2 to $0.50/ft2, depending on the building type, location, office area plan, and local cost of energy. Photosensor layout is important. Source: LightLouver LLC Occupancy sensors Ultrasonic has wider range than infrared but is prone to false positives. Can shorten life of fluorescents with instant start ballast. $30 to $150 cost. 2-year payback is normal.

29 Lighting controls Dimming
A solid-state dimmer works by using silicon-controlled rectifiers (SCRs). Radio frequency interference (RFI) can be a problem. Greatly increases bulb life for incandescent/halogens. Requires special dimming ballast for fluorescents. 3-wire, 2-wire, or 4-wire. Energy savings fairly linear with fluorescents. Continuous or bi-level dimming HID lighting limited to 50% to 60% dimming. Two-level for magnetic ballasts (non-linear energy savings). Continuous for electronic ballasts (energy savings linear). Lamp life degrades if dimming to less than 60% level.

30 Lighting controls Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI)
A royalty-free, non-proprietary, two-way, open and interoperable digital protocol. The Gateway broadcasts commands to all digital ballasts across the signal cabling that connects the ballasts in parallel. A ballast only responds when the message contains its specific address. Sixteen programmable scenarios and groups stored in the ballast.

32 Lighting maintenance Nine components of a good lighting maintenance program*: Group relamping Know your equipment Focusing and adjustment Verify lamp types and wattage Verify color temperature Confirm that everything is in working order Watch for compatibility issues Get rid of dirt Do not forget exterior lighting *"Everything You Need to Know About Maintaining Your Lighting System," by Jean Sundin, founder of Office for Visual Interaction, Inc.

33 Lighting maintenance Group relamping recommended at 60% to 80% of rated life. Every 2 to 3 years for 20,000 hour fluorescents. Can be 30% to 40% cheaper to group relamp due to labor savings. Easier to schedule and outsource than spot relamping. Reduces improper mixing of different types of lamps. Normally done outside working hours. Lighting failure modes Heat Voltage transients Vibration Bad electrical connection Improper cycling
