An experimental investigation of diversity factors for CFLs (compact fluorescent lamps) in combination with LED (light emitting diode) lamps is presented in this paper. Diversity factors were calculated for different configurations of lamps connected to the same feeder in one phase. It was found that the presence of LED lamps with a high apparent power input can lead to considerable damping of harmonics. If the number of CFLs is much greater, this effect was found as very low. Harmonic emission limits for lamps were also analyzed. A conclusion has been made that with a sufficient variety of energy saving lamps phasing out of incandescent lamps should not significantly impact the resultant harmonic distortion.
