Inrush Current and Solid State Lighting
In the early 80’s with the advent of the first electronic CFL lamps we learned of the detrimental effect of power surges and something called Inrush Current.
At a condominium complex with several identical buildings only one would burn out these lamps very quickly. It was discovered that every time the elevator started the voltage would drop and then comeback with a force of 132+ volts and soon the lamps failed. Power problem corrected and so was the lamp problem.
