  • Documentation of the Yuma Sector Border Patrol Area lighting LED trial demonstration continues to provide a better understanding of LED technology performance in a high ambient temperature and high solar radiation environment. Measured data at the project site showed illuminances changing more rapidly than anticipated. As previously predicted, the causes for these observed changes are mostly if not completely explained by dirt accumulation. The laboratory measurements showed not only the effect of dirt on lumen output, but also on the distribution of light exiting the luminaire.
  • Along the Yuma Sector Border Patrol Area in Yuma, Arizona, the GATEWAY program conducted a trial evaluation in which the incumbent quartz metal halide area lighting was replaced with LED at three pole locations, and illuminance measurements were recorded initially and at 2500 hours, 5000 hours, 7000, and 11,000 hours of operation. Additionally, four second-generation LED luminaires installed as part of the full installation were evaluated initially and again after 4,000 hours of operation. While the initial energy, lighting quality, and maintenance benefits relative to the incumbent high-pressure sodium system were very satisfactory, the study raises important questions regarding themore » long-term performance of LED lighting systems in high-temperature environments.« less
  • This report summarizes an assessment project conducted to evaluate light-emitting diode (LED) luminaires with bi-level operation in an outdoor parking lot application.
  • This CALiPER report analyzes the independently tested performance of 11 anonymously purchased LED downlight retrofit units—referred to as the Series 14 products. All the units were tested in a 6-inch insulation contact (IC) rated downlight housing mounted in a 24-inch by 24-inch insulated enclosure.
  • This report documents the economic feasibility assessment for a distributed controls system retrofit at the nine-unit TVA Kingston Steam Plant, a 1950`s vintage coal-fired plant with electric analog controls being dispatched by Automatic Generation Control. This assessment included evaluating the existing instrumentation, actuators, and plant support systems as well as the control system. Two measures aided the effort: (1) use of EPRI Controls Retrofit Guidelines and (2) identification of additional cost savings by introducing R&D products concurrently with the controls retrofit. The economic feasibility assessment demonstrated a total yearly benefit of $580,000, with a one-time savings of $1.8M from potentiallymore » eliminating the requirement to install LO-NOx burners.« less
