Abstract

Most people have experience the sensation of varying light intensity from lamps as other loads connected to the same mains circuit draw fluctuating current. This perceptible variation in light is called flicker. To measure flicker, The IEC has defined two weighting curves for flicker frequency on 230V/50Hz and 120V/60Hz systems respectively. In this paper we explore the relationship between these two curves and propose a light flicker weighting curve which is independent of the light bulb types as well as the supplying source system. This novel curve can be exploited to weight the light flicker spectrum for all kinds of lamps and then report the flicker severity index.
