Light emitting diodes are becomming very popular these days people are using them instead of other lights because they are cost effective .Because leds are connected to the AC Supply it produces ripples at the outer end which results in flickering.Any light source which is connected to AC supply results in flickers.
However flickering can be reduced with different methods one method is to use high frequency switching supplies, which helps to reduce the AC component of the main supply and reduces the flickers but not all flickers are avoidable .Remaining flickers can be removed by attenuating g the AC component at the output
This approach may well shorten the lifetime of the string of LED's. The LED's are brighter because the duty cycle has increased from about .5 too near 1, the average current has increased by a factor of 2 and device (LED) heating has certainly increased.
