A novel self-oscillating electronic ballast with dimming capability and high power factor correction (PFC) is proposed in this paper. The single-stage electronic ballast integrates a buck-boost PFC stage with a half-bridge LCC series-parallel resonant inverter. The buck-boost semistage operating in discontinuous conduction mode inherently has high PFC. The inverter is dimmable in self-oscillation mode, which is achieved using pulsewidth modulation and variable-frequency controls. The dimming circuit is simple and low cost. The self-sustained oscillation of the dimmable electronic ballast for fluorescent lamps was verified using the dual-input describing function method. A prototype of a 10-W dimmable electronic ballast was implemented to verify the theoretical analysis.
