Self-oscillating transformerless electronic ballast

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #8174201.

An electronic ballast includes a rectifier circuit having a first output terminal for coupling with a lamp; a first inductor coupled with a first node; a resonant network coupled with the first node; a first capacitor coupled with the first node; a first resistor coupled with a second node; a second resistor coupled with a second output terminal of the rectifier circuit; a power switch having an output end, a ground end and a control end, wherein the output end is coupled with the first node and the ground end is coupled with the second resistor; a voltage divider for driving the power switch; and a second inductor coupled between the second node and the control end of the power switch.
