Abstract

A new differential equation representing the time dependence of high-pressure arc conductance for any given lamp parameter is derived. This is useful in order to predict ac characteristics for various operating conditions. A comparison of measured dynamic data of a high-pressure mercury lamp with computations confirms the fair agreement between theory and experiment.
