Project #103: Glare Modelling for LED luminaires

Back

Description:

This project focuses on designing of a glare modelling tool for LED luminaires. Although glare values can be calculated by commercial lighting products such as DIALux and AGI, the calculation techniques are limited and cannot serve multisource luminaires. These days many luminaires consist of multiple light sources or diffusers. In some cases the diffusers ore not uniformly illuminated. Also most commercial tool are restricted to horizontal lines of sight, which cannot be applied on glare calculations in lecture rooms. The existing glare calculation tools do not allow such variations. A new tool should be introduced, evaluated and compared with a commercial tool.

Outcome:

Software tool will be developed
