This paper presents a design methodology and analysis of electronic ballast employing the self-oscillating-command circuit. The self-oscillating electronic ballast is represented as a relay control system in order to determine its parameters using the describing-function method and an extended Nyquist stability criterion. Simulation and experimental results of the electronic ballast supplying a 40-W fluorescent lamp are presented in order to confirm the feasibility of the performed design methodology.
