A Comparative Study of Outdoor Lighting System Performance

Elisabeta Spunei, Ion Piroi, Florina Piroi
We analyse in this work three outdoor lighting systems using three types of light sources, in order to determine their performance with respect to outdoor lighting restrictions. The study in this work contributes to gaining insights on how to increase the outdoor lighting systems' energy efficiency. We analyse two LED source types and one sodium fumes light source type, which illuminates various sections on a street in Reşiţa, Romania. Upon analysing and processing the data, we establish the
