1. What is the standard size of cricket ground?

What is the standard size of cricket ground

There are no fixed dimensions for a cricket field. However the ICC does mandate dimensions for a field to host an international competition, and the majority of First Class pitches would also aim to fit within these dimensions.

The ICC Test Match playing conditions states:

The playing area shall be a minimum of 150 yards (137.16 metres) from boundary to boundary square of the cricket field, with the shorter of the two square boundaries being a minimum 65 yards (59.43 metres). The straight boundary at both ends of the pitch shall be a minimum of 70 yards (64.00 metres), measured from the centre of the pitch to be used. In all cases the aim shall be to provide the largest playing area, subject to no boundary exceeding 90 yards (82.29 metres) from the centre of the pitch to be used.

2. What is the lux standard for Cricket Lighting?

What is the lux standard for Cricket Lighting

As a fast moving ball sport the lighting illuminance requirements for cricket are generally comparatively higher than for the ball sports of Australian Rules Football, Rugby codes and
Football (Soccer) – the seasonal sports that cricket typically shares venues with.

Illuminance requirements are most important in the centre wicket (pitch) and square areas where heightened activity occurs. For this reason higher illuminance levels are specified in this area than for the outfield.

Illuminance is also important to adequately disclosethe position of boundaries.

5.What is the Running Cost of a Cricket Stadium Lighting?

Assuming the lux required is 500lux and we need 80,000 watt, the cost of running the cricket stadium lighting system is about (80,000 watt x 8 hours / 1000) x $0.12 kWh = $76.8 per day if you use 8 hours per day, then $1689.6 per month (for 22 days), $20275.2 per year.

6.How much can you save by switching to LED Cricket Stadium Lighting?

For example, the 80pcs 1000w LED Cricket Light is adopted to replace the 80pcs traditional 2000w (total power of single lamp is 2080w) high pressure sodium lamp. The economic analysis results are as follows:

2000W HPS

Two years of input and maintenance cost = single lamp price * lamp quantity + bulb price * bulb replacement quantity = 450*80+20*80 =37,600$ , two years of electricity = single lamp power * lamp quantity * daily working hours *365 days * electricity price *2 = 2080*80/1000*10*365*0.12*2 =145,766$ , two years of cost = 37,600$ +145,766$ = 183,366$.

1000w LED Cricket lights solution

two-year investment and maintenance cost = lamp price * lamp quantity +bulb price*bulb replacement quantity = 800$/set *80 sets +0 = 64,000$; two-year electricity fee = single lamp power * lamp quantity * daily working hours *365 days * electricity price *2 = 1000*80/1000*10*365*0.12*2 = 70,080$. Two-year cost = 64,000$ + 70,080$ =134,080

Note: the service life of high pressure sodium lamp is generally only 2 ~ 3 years, so the actual replacement cycle of high pressure sodium lamp is two years. However, the service life of LED is about 80,000hrs, so it can work for more than 25 years if working for 10hrs every day. 2000w high pressure sodium lamp, the actual power consumption of a single lamp is 2080w. Calculated according to the unit price of electricity charge: $0.12/kWh. Single light 1000w LED cricket light, its LED power is about 995w. All the lamp price is caculated as an approx range, because different quality will be different price.

From the above data, it can be seen that using LED cricket lights can save (145,766-70,080)/2=$37,843 of electricity every year. Although LED Cricket Field Lightings one-time investment is large, about twice as high pressure sodium lamp. But over two years of operation, the led cricket lights is obviously better cost effective. Considering the saving of electricity and maintenance costs, it is calculated that the service life of each LED cricket light is 10 years. Within the life cycle, the investment payback period of LED cricket light is less than 2 years, so the electricity cost and maintenance costs saved in the remaining 8 years are the actual energy saving benefits.

Conclusion

The use of LED lighting technology can improve the efficiency of Cricket light energy, not only response to the resource-saving, environment-friendly social requirements, but also enhance the competitiveness and improve economic benefits. With the further maturity of LED products, LED lamps will gradually replace high-energy lamps such as high pressure sodium more traditional lamps.
