This paper discusses a method for switching device selection for CFL ballast to determine the best overall output with reduced switching losses at higher frequencies.The inputs to selection process are lamp power, expected product life, and a range of semiconductor devices that satisfy electrical requirements of conventional, half bridge series resonant ballast topology.The selection process is illustrated on the example of N-channel MOSFET pair and a pair of IGBTs. While this paper addresses switching device selection for CFL applications, the approach is more universal and it can be implemented to guide switching device selection in order to minimize cost for other electronic equipment as well. A systematic approach is developed to produce a compact fluorescent lamp model using Matlab/Simulink.
