  3. 3. IntroductionBasic Theory• Light: electromagnetic waves in space• Light is emitted through: a) Incandescence b) Electric discharge c) Electro luminescence d) Photoluminescence 3
  4. 4. IntroductionDefinitions and Common Terms Lumen • 1 lumen = the photometric equivalent of the watt • 1 lumen = luminous flux per m2 of a sphere with 1 m radius and a 1 candela isotropic light source at the centre • 1 watt = 683 lumens at 555 nm wavelength Lux • metric unit of measure for illuminance on a surface: 1 lux = 1 lumen / m2 4
  5. 5. IntroductionDefinitions and Common Terms Luminous intensity (I) • measured in Candela (cd) Luminous flux (lm) • 4 x luminous intensity 5
  6. 6. IntroductionDefinitions and Common Terms Installed load efficacy • Average maintained illuminance on a working plane: lux/W/m2 Installed load efficiency ratio • Target load efficacy / Installed load Rated luminous efficacy • Rated lumen output of the lamp / rated power consumption • Lumens per watt 6
  7. 7. IntroductionDefinitions and Common Terms Room index • Ratio for the plan dimensions of the room Target load efficiency • Installed load efficacy considered achievable under best efficiency • Lux/W/m² Utilization factor • A measure of the effectiveness of the lighting scheme 7
  8. 8. IntroductionDefinitions and Common Terms The inverse square law • Defines the relationship between illuminance from a point source and distance E = Iluminance E=I/ d2 I = Luminous intensity E1 d12 = E2 d22 d = distance 8
  9. 9. IntroductionDefinitions and Common Terms Color temperature • Color appearance of a lamp and the light it produces • Measured in Kelvin (K) • Incandescent lamps: “true value” color temperature • Fluorescent and high intensity discharge (HID) lamps: correlated color temperature 9

  27. 27. Assessment of Lighting SystemsDesigning with Light• Better lighting: increased productivity• Two main questions for designer: • Choose correct lighting level • Choose quality of light (color rendering) 27
  28. 28. Assessment of Lighting Systems Designing with LightRecommended light levels for different tasks (BEE India, 2005) Illuminance Examples of Area of Activity level (lux)General Lighting for rooms 20 Minimum service illuminance in exterior circulating areas,and areas used either outdoor stores , stockyardsinfrequentlyand/or casual or simple 50 Exterior walkways & platforms.visual tasks 70 Boiler house. 100 Transformer yards, furnace rooms etc. 150 Circulation areas in industry, stores and stock rooms. 200 Minimum service illuminance on the task 300 Medium bench & machine work, general process in chemical and food industries, casual reading and filing activities.General lighting for 450 Hangers, inspection, drawing offices, fine bench and machineinteriors assembly, colour work, critical drawing tasks. 1500 Very fine bench and machine work, instrument & small precision mechanism assembly; electronic components, gauging & inspection of small intricate parts (may be partly provided by local task lighting)Additional localized lighting 3000 Minutely detailed and precise work, e.g. Very smallfor visually exacting tasks parts of instruments, watch making, engraving. 28
  29. 29. Assessment of Lighting SystemsRecommended Illuminance Levels Scale of illuminance • Illuminance for all non-working interiors > 20 Lux • Factor 1.5 is the smallest significant difference in effect of illuminance • Therefore the following scale is recommended: 20–30–50–75–100–150–200–300–500–750–1000 –1500–2000, …Lux 29
  30. 30. Assessment of Lighting SystemsRecommended Illuminance Levels Illuminance ranges recommended for interior or activity • Middle value (R) for working interiors • Higher value (H) for visual work • Lower value (L) where accuracy is non- important 30
  31. 31. Assessment of Lighting SystemsMethodology for Efficiency Study• Step 1: Make inventory of lighting system elements and transformers Table: Device rating, population and use profile S. Plant Lighting Rating in Population Use / Shifts as I / N Locati Device & Watts Lamp Numbers II / III shifts / Day o. on Ballast Type & Ballast Table: Lighting transformer/rating and population profile S. Plant Lighting Measurement Provisions Numbers N Locatio Transformer Rating Available Volts / Amps / Installed o. n (kVA) kW/ Energy 31
  32. 32. Assessment of Lighting SystemsMethodology for Efficiency Study• Step 2: Measure and document the Lux levels• Step 3: Measure and document the voltage and power consumption at input points• Step 4: Compare the measured Lux values with standard values as reference• Step 5: Analyze the failure rates of lamps, ballasts and the actual life expectancy levels 32
  33. 33. Assessment of Lighting SystemsMethodology for Efficiency StudyStep-6 : identify improvement options, for example:• Maximum sunlight use options through transparent roof sheets• Replacements of lamps and ballasts to more energy efficient types• Selecting interior colors for light reflection• Modifying layout as per needs• Providing individual / group controls for lighting 33
