Abstract

The lighting parameters of LEDs are constantly improving. They should not however be applied directly in general lighting luminaires. Luminous intensity distribution solid of high power LEDs is inappropriate for the uniform lighting of a target surface and produces too high of a luminance for this luminaire for large elevation angles. We analyzed the luminous intensity curves allowing us to achieve the best possible lighting uniformity and limited distribution of the luminous flux. Specially manufactured reflectors with limited height were applied in the designed luminaire model. The application of 30 white and additionally six red diodes in the same luminaire provided the resulting optical radiation with the color temperature of 3702   K and a color rendering index of 81.
