LED Luminaires, interpolation, spectral power distribution


LED luminaires with controllable luminous flux are increasingly used, mainly due to the need to reduce electricity consumption, which is the equivalent of improving the energy efficiency of a lighting installation. Changing the dimming level changes the spectral power distribution of the luminaire or light source. Knowledge of dimming characteristics including spectral power distribution relationships provides the opportunity to optimize control algorithms and predict the impact of lighting parameters on the work surface. The paper presents a mathematical model to calculate the spectral power distribution of an LED luminaire for any level of dimming. Two interpolation methods were used to develop the model, fitted by polynomial functions and spline functions. Validation of the model was performed for two values of control voltage-dimming levels.
