In this paper, the designing of a modified flyback converter circuit for 100 Watts LED lighting has been demonstrated. Some important factors, i.e. efficiency (ɛ), power factor (PF), and total harmonic current distortion (THDi), are considered for interpreting the performance of the proposed circuit. A commercial driver circuit which an efficiency of 94% and price of ∼2,000 THB has, consequently, been employed as a reference circuit. Two experimental setups, performance investigation and cost analysis, have been demonstrated for confirming the concept designed. However, the experimental results shown that an efficiency of the developed driver is 93.93%, while the implementation cost is 1,257 THB respectively. Compared with the reference circuit, we found that the performance of modified flyback circuit is almost equivalent in any parameters, while the cost is cheaper than the reference of 37.15%. This implies that there is a possibility to transfer the knowledge of designing concept to mass production for Thailand industry. In addition, it would thus be reduced the investment cost by the importation driver circuits from other countries and also to support Thailand industry for producing the high quality goods for exporting aboard.
