A novel method for designing half-bridge series-parallel resonant inverters suitable for driving various fluorescent lamps with dimming feature is introduced. The analysis of proposed method is specially concerned with the second-order high frequency equivalent model of fluorescent lamps. To ensure zero-voltage-switching, the L6569-driven power stages is set of operate above the resonant frequency. A design example are presented for a 40W fluorescent lamp operating at a 30kHz switching frequency and 110V-rms utility line voltage. Quasi-sinusoidal waveforms are obtained and the crest factor of lamp current is smaller than 1.7, resulting in longer lamp life. Lamps of various powers and brands are tested. All show good performance, verifying the functionality of the proposed procedure.
