The basic illumination characteristics of an efficient white LEDs lighting source, which is composed of cannon-ball type 10 cd-class InGaN-based white LEDs, are described. It is noted that the temperature and forward-bias current dependence under full wave rectification of AC 100 V gives a significant effect to both electroluminescence properties and luminous efficacy. We have obtained a maximum luminous intensity of 95000 cd/m2 and a luminous efficacy of about 27 lm/W at an electric power of 20 W (at a constant current of 10 mA). The developed white LEDs lighting source indicates two injection electroluminescence peaks at 465 and 555 nm, which are originated from a blue LED and a YAG:Ce3+ phosphor, respectively. The illuminance distribution of the LED lighting source was analyzed using our `multi sources of LED light' theory. We have performed the design of a street lighting as the practical application using the 700 LEDs array lighting source.
