The current number of magnetic and electronic ballast
discharge lamps in power distribution systems is increasing
because they perform better than incandescent lamps. This
paper studies the magnetic discharge lamp modeling. In
particular, the arc voltage waveform is analyzed and the
limitations of the square waveform model are revealed from
