Is there a correction for LED lamps, either GU10 or panels.

Cant find any manufacturers data or online details.

I should have said no definitive answers on line. I am trying to complete a loadings calc for a shop with 100% led lights

I've never seen any figures for gear losses etc.       Just go with the lamp wattages  , can't be far out surely ?

LED lamps have SMPSU's, so they have stupid inrush currents, but, for very short periods, so I ignore it, as it is "the same" as motor starting currents, and can be ignored under, "most", circumstances.

There are no "gear losses" ala dishcarge lights.

Note, there are exceptions, as there are on all rules, and this one is empirical, rather than theoretical.
