Introduction
The

number of discharge lamps (DLs) in power distribution systems is increasing because they have a longer life and higher lighting efficiency than incandescent lights. lights

Despite

their small power, these lamps may be an important source of harmonics because a large number of them can be connected to the same bus.

Introduction
Many

works on harmonic currents injected into installations by magnetic ballast lamps have been conducted. supply l voltage lt and d pure linear li inductive ballast are usually y assumed in these studies. the arc voltage is modeled as a square waveform voltage source. source
