This paper presents the results from the research of the indexes in regard to the power supply network, when a change is applied to the power supply tension of the Compact Fluorescent Lamps and LED Lamps with power up to 30W of different manufacturers. Comparision data is presented for the power factor, the displacement factor and the total harmonic distortion of the current, and the relevant conclusions have been made.
