Introduction to LED Lighting and Luminaires

<< Back to Course Catalogue

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand and apply lighting terminology and parameters to LED lamps & luminaires
  • Evaluate the performance and reliability of a LED lamp retrofit or LED luminaire
  • Identify the compliance of lighting products with specific codes and standards
  • Select the replacement of traditional lighting sources with LED lighting
  • Develop basic skills for specification of LED luminaires based on lighting performance, cost, ergonomics and ecology

Description
In recent years, developments in LED technology have fueled the transition of the lighting industry from traditional light sources (incandescent, fluorescent, HID) to the light-emitting diode (LED).  Whether it's about import or manufacturing, code compliance or lighting applications, the evaluation of the LED lamps and fixtures requires specific knowledge and understanding of technical parameters.

This course focuses on basic knowledge in three main areas: lighting, electricity and thermal regime.  The presentation continues with design and construction details and recommends selection criteria of LED luminaires, as a function of lighting performance, total cost, work environment and ecological impact.
