After decades of technical improvement, LED luminous efficiency has been greatly improved. The efficiency of incandescent lamp and halogen tungsten lamp is 12-24lm / W, that of fluorescent lamp is 50-70lm / W, and that of sodium lamp is 90-140lm / W. most of the power consumption turns into heat loss. The light efficiency of LED has reached 120-200 LM / W, and its light has good monochromatic, narrow spectrum, and can directly emit colored visible light without filtering. At present, countries around the world are still stepping up the research on improving LED luminous efficiency, and its luminous efficiency will be greatly improved in the future.

1. Requirements of LED driving circuit

According to the voltage and current variation characteristics of LED, at present, LED lamps produced by many manufacturers adopt constant voltage drive, which is nothing more than using resistance and capacitance step-down, and then adding a voltage stabilizing diode to stabilize voltage, or using switching power supply to supply power to LED, which has great defects in the way of driving LED. The first is inefficiency. Secondly, the ability of stabilizing voltage is poor. Therefore, the best way to drive LED is constant current drive. Constant current power supply can eliminate the current change caused by the change of forward voltage. Therefore, constant LED brightness can be generated.
