Abstract A novel electrode power control scheme for dimmable ballasts is proposed. Dimming of the fluorescent lamp and control of electrode power are achieved by simultaneously adjusting the dc-link voltage and the switching frequency of the output inverter. The electrode power is derived by considering the near-orthogonal property of the lamp current and the resonant tank circuit current.
