Lighting control system: energy efficiency and users

Michela Chiogna, Antonio Frattari

Abstract: Due to new European standards and requirements regarding energy performance in non-residential buildings, it is strategic to explore and quantify the benefits of typical energy saving design measures (automatic systems) compared with traditional operation systems (manual system) considering appropriate reference case studies so to benchmark the performance of automatic control systems. In order to set up design and intervention strategies towards energy saving and environmental protection, efficient daylight-responsive systems for illumination of buildings, including installation of automatic lighting control systems, can provide a significant contribution. Moreover, it is becoming increasingly important to establish a realistic baseline of the actual lighting energy consumption in buildings for the different scenarios nowadays used (both manually and automatically operated), which incorporates occupants
