	%X Although lighting systems powered by Photovoltaic
(PV) cells have existed for many years, they are not widely used,
especially in lighting for buildings, due to their high initial cost and
low conversion efficiency. One of the technical challenges facing PV
powered lighting systems has been how to use dc power generated by
the PV module to energize common light sources that are designed to
operate efficiently under ac power. Usually, the efficiency of the dc
light sources is very poor compared to ac light sources. Rapid
developments in LED lighting systems have made this technology a
potential candidate for PV powered lighting systems. This study
analyzed the efficiency of each component of PV powered lighting
systems to identify optimum system configurations for different
applications.
