A generic red, green, blue (RGB) LED system involves complex interactions of power, heat, light, and color, which pose a major challenge for achieving precise control over luminance and color-mixing in high-quality lighting applications. In this work, new nonlinear empirical models of a practical RGB LED system with closed-loop control are formulated. The proposed models enable precise prediction of luminous flux and color coordinates by using the three distinct reference voltages as the control variables for independent current regulation across the red, green and blue LED strings. The results are experimentally verified by using a hardware prototype of a DC-DC single-inductor three-output (SITO) LED driver with proportional-integral (PI) compensators and time-interleaving control scheme. The measured values of luminous flux and color coordinates agree closely with the predicted values from the models.
