A SPICE compatible model of High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamps was developed and verified against experimental results. The model is based on fundamental physical-thermal principles and applies lamp parameters and universal constants. The model was found to faithfully emulate the static and dynamic electrical responses of a High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lamp under low frequency (50Hz) and high frequency (30kHz) excitation.
