Smart Controls for Lighting Design: Towards a Study of the Boundary Conditions

I. Acosta, M. A. Campano, P. Bustamante, and J. F. Molina
Abstract—This research aims to determine the effect of the lighting smart controls in the energy consumption in buildings, according to the geometry of the room, the window size, the reflectance of the inner surfaces and the location of study. For this purpose, two lighting smart controls are proposed: one based in an On/Off lighting control with separated lines and other with a dimming control. The analysis of both control systems is carried out by using daylight dynamic metrics, such as the daylight autonomy and the continuous daylight autonomy. The results quantify the effect of the architectural variables of the room in the performance of the lighting smart controls.

Index Terms—Smart controls, energy saving, window design, daylight autonomy, continuous daylight autonomy.
