Activity of the research group:

Multi-domain (combined electrical, optical and thermal) measurement, modelling and simulation of LED luminaires, OLED devices, CoB LEDs, including LED ageing studies. Research for Lighting 4.0.

Recent results:

Together with members of the Delphi4LED consortium led by Signify, we have developed an Industry 4.0-like workflow for the fully computerised design of LED luminaires, essentially eliminating the need for physical prototyping of luminaires. The workflow is based on multi-domain digital twins of LEDs and LED modules, which are used to create virtual prototypes of LED luminaires for a given application scenario. Using these, computer simulations can be used to define the key operating parameters, eliminating the need for physical prototyping of the luminaires.
  • The digital twins of LEDs (or more precisely LED packages) are based on the so-called wafer-level multi-domain LED model developed by us. This model has been further developed in several steps.
  • We have developed a method to develop a system-level model of LED luminaires.
  • We have developed a method for a constant total luminous flux control scheme for LED luminaires. This can save up to 3-5% of the electricity consumed by street lighting.
  • We have developed a new theory to describe the aging process of LEDs using standard LM-80 measurements.
  • A theoretical model for constant luminous flux control compensating for both temperature variation and ageing effects has been developed. Nearly 14% of the electricity consumed during the lifetime of the L90 can be saved and the lifetime can be extended by nearly 30%.
  • We have developed a multi-domain model of an LED type describing ageing. With such a model, Industry 4.0 design work can be significantly accelerated and the resources required can be greatly reduced.
  • Complex in-situ test methods have been developed to determine the operational performance parameters of LEDs. The method can be used to detect, among other things, problems resulting from faulty thermal design.
