This paper provides information about self-ballasted lamps and the implications these lamps present from a power quality perspective. It focuses on the use of self-ballasted lamps in residences and on residential power quality. Self-ballasted lamps have dedicated ballasts that are part of the lamp itself. This allows the lamp to be used in some sockets that were originally meant for incandescent lamps. The ballast intercepts the electrical current before it enters the bulb itself, and it cannot be removed from the base. CFLs and some LED lamps are examples of self-ballasted lamps.
