  14. 14. Review - Daylighting Definitions Architectural definition: the interplay of natural light and building form to provide a visually stimulating, healthful, and productive interior environment Lighting Energy Savings definition: the replacement of indoor electric illumination needs by daylight, resulting in reduced annual energy consumption for lighting Building Energy Consumption definition: the use of fenestration systems and responsive electric lighting controls to reduce overall building energy requirements (heating, cooling, lighting) Load Management definition: dynamic control of fenestration and lighting to manage and control building peak electric demand and load shape Cost definition: the use of daylighting strategies to minimize operating costs and maximize output, sales, or productivity ** *
  15. 15. Green Building Rating Systems I LEED and Green Globe provide daylight credits for: ! daylight factor ! view to the outside ! specification of shading devices (Green Globe only) Compliance is verified via spreadsheet method. Do daylight factor & view LEED to good daylighting?
  16. 16. Daylight Factor Definition E point E outside horizontal DF = (E point/E outside horizontal) * 100% The DF is only defined under overcast skies!
  17. 17. Credit 8.1 Daylight 75% of Spaces 1 Credit • Archive a minimum Daylight factor of 2% (excluding all direct sunlight penetration) in 75% of all space occupied for critical visual tasks. Spaces excluded from this requirement include copy rooms, storage areas, mechanical plant rooms, laundry and other low occupancy support areas. Other explanations for spaces where tasks would be hindered by the use of daylight will be considered on their merits. Green Building Rating Systems II
  18. 18. Credit 8.2 Views for 90% of Spaces 1 Credit • Achieve direct line of sight to vision glazing for building occupants in 90% of all regularly occupied spaces. Examples for exceptions copy rooms, storage areas, mechanical, laundry and other low occupancy support areas. Other exemptions will be considered on their merits. Green Building Rating Systems III

  23. 23. Ecotect Demo - Prepare a simple model, add a grid, start a simulation
  24. 24. CIE clear sky CIE overcast sky Overcast sky: zenith to horizon 3-1 Sky Models: CIE Sky Model
  25. 25. Square One web site Design Sky values are derived from a statistical analysis of outdoor illuminance levels. They represent a horizontal illuminance level that is exceeded 85% of the time between the hours of 9am and 5pm throughout the working year. Thus they also represent a worst-case scenario that you can design to and be sure your building will meet the desired light levels at least 85% of the time. Limitation in Ecotect. Climate files are not used by lighting simulation. Design Sky Values
  26. 26. Average Daylight Factor (spread sheet method, similar to IESNA method) Original Split Flux Method (Daylight Factor Protractors) Points of Equal Sky Illuminance Split Flux Method in Ecotect Daylight Factor Calculation Methods
  27. 27. W = The area of each window (m²), ττττ = Transmittance of each glazing material θθθθ = Vertical angle of the sky as seen from the centre of each window m = Maintenance factor based on angle of glazing and the cleanliness of its environment (0.5 – 0.9), A = Total internal surface area of the space, including walls, floors, ceilings and windows (m²), R 2= Area weighted average reflectance of all surfaces making up A, (use 0.1 as reflectance for glass). Average Daylight Factor Calculation
  28. 28. SC = direct component ERC = externally reflected component IRC = internally reflected component DF= SC + ERC + IRC UK Building Research Establishment (BRE) Split Flux Method
  29. 29. Daylight Factor Protractors SC ERC Square One web site
  30. 30. Square One web site
  31. 31. DF = SC + ERC + IRC = 1.52% + 0.0456% + 1.7586% = 3.324 % In Montreal: Design sky = 7215 Lux Light Level = 7215 Lux x 3.324% = 240 Lux
  32. 32. Square One web site Points of Equal Sky Illuminance
  33. 33. Square One web site A geometric version of the Split Flux Method (BRE) Raytracing: each ray represents an approximately equal solid angle of sky Split Flux Method in Ecotect
  34. 34. Split Flux Method in Ecotect Square One web site A Sky Component (SC) is modified by: • relative sky illuminance of that particular sky patch •relative angle of sky patch makes with a horizontal surface •visible transmittance of each glazing material through which it travels
  35. 35. Split Flux Method in Ecotect Square One web site An Externally Reflected Component (ERC) is modified by: • luminance of the sky it would have hit • reflectance of the material assigned to the external object • relative surface angle and glazing transmittances
  36. 36. Split Flux Method in Ecotect Square One web site An Internally Reflected Component (IRC) is modified by: • store internal surface reflectance of the object • altitude angle of the ray is used to determine which parts of the IRC formula the ray contributes to.
  37. 37. Split Flux Method in Ecotect Summing up over ray contribution and comparing it against the total unmodified illuminance gives the Daylight Factor.
  38. 38. BRE Daylight Factor method uses a relatively simple formula for the effect of internal reflections. To be fully compliant with this method, Ecotect cannot consider multiple reflections. Therefore, Ecotect underestimates indirect daylight solutions that rely on the reflection of light off multiple surfaces to illuminate a space. Limitations of the sky model (Ecotect does not use annual climate file data for daylighting). Limitations of the Ecotect Approach

  40. 40. Daylight Factor – design implications window head height !!!!reference glazing type !!!! narrow floor plan !!!!
  41. 41. Daylight Factor – design implications II The daylight factor optimized building is fully glazed.
  42. 42. Daylight Factor – design implications III Daylight factor does not take glare or solar gain control into account. The consequence of too large glazings: The blinds are closed most of the time.
