Abstract: The modeling of the alternative flicker meter is based on the original Flicker meter proposed by the IEC61000-4-15. Some important modifications are added in order to quantify the light variations directly. It eliminates the effect associated with the different lamp technologies available through the correct quantification of flicker severity. In order to achieve this objective blocks 1 and 3 of the original IEC Flicker meter has been altered and block 2 is completely eliminated. This article helps in technical computation of alternative flicker meter before going to the hardware implementation using MATLAB simulink.
