Lighting Controls Association members will present “Design of Electric Controls for Daylighting,” a three-hour workshop, during the Daylighting Institute at LIGHTFAIR 2011.
Energy efficiency through daylighting can only be realized when electric lights are dimmed or switched. This workshop provides information about daylight harvesting control strategies and technologies in a case study format for real-world context, focusing on current approaches, main issues and emerging technologies (e.g., automatic calibration/commissioning, use of multiple sensors), including use of open and closed loop sensing, photosensor characteristics, control algorithms and commissioning.
Learning Objective 1: Learn about various technologies and equipment types used to harvest daylight into energy savings.
Learning Objective 2: Achieve an understanding of what constitutes good and bad daylighting and how to design a daylight harvesting control system. Students will be engaged in an interactive format to solve real-world problems via a case study approach supplemented by handouts.
Learning Objective 3: Learn about how to properly commission and set up a daylight harvesting control system, with handouts including a generic specification, specification punch list, and detailed commissioning procedures.
Learning Objective 4: Student will engage in problem-solving using real-world examples.
This workshop has been presented by these very knowledgeable industry veterans since 2009 and consistently scores high marks from attendees.
If you’re attending LIGHTFAIR this year in Philadelphia and interested in learning about daylight harvesting controls, be sure to register and attend this workshop.
