"I like LED lights and know they cost less to run but the wattage is poor on the replacements they have fitted and do not match the brightness of the yellow glow lamp posts we used to have.
For the selected values of parameters of elements in the electrical equipment scheme for example: [C.sub.1] = [C.sub.2] = [C.sub.3] = [C.sub.4] = 310pF, [R.sub.1] = [R.sub.2] = [R.sub.3] = 10M[ohm], L=310pH, and glow lamp switching voltage U=37V, we get diagrams for the current and the voltage on the input and the output of the device as is shown in Fig.6.
