Canan Perdahci, Ph. D., Associate Professor. She received the B. E. and M. Sc. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Yildiz, Istanbul, Turkey, in 1991 and 1993, respectively, and the Ph. D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Kocaeli, Kocaeli, Turkey, in 1997. In 1992, she joined the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Kocaeli, as a Lecturer, and in 2019 became an Associate Professor. Her current research interests include LED lighting, UVC, power quality, tunnel lighting, road lighting

This paper presents a detailed comparison between a new type of antibacterial LED panel and fluorescent lamps connected to electronic ballast in a simple examination room, which requires 300 lx in a healthcare facility. Within the study, power consumption (W), luminous flux (lm) and luminous efficacy of both light sources were measured. Luminous flux values were then compared to the amount of power they consumed. Electrical power consumption of these luminaires was also analyzed. To enable an objective comparison between these two types of luminaires ReluxDesktop_2017.1.10.0 simulation program was used. To verify the results obtained by the ReluxDesktop, photometric measurement results of the products were also obtained. The results obtained by the study have shown that the LED panel to be used in the healthcare facility may decrease the maintenance and lighting costs by saving energy while maintaining the illumination levels required by the healthcare facility lighting standards.
