  1. 1. Lighting Control Systems for Energy Saving and User Acceptance: State-of-the-art and future directions

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Engineering

    Author : Niko Gentile; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Indoor lighting; lighting control system; lighting control; energy saving; energy efficiency; user acceptance; human factor; occupancy strategies; absence sensor; presence sensor; lighting switch; manual switch; daylight harvesting system; daylight-linked system; photoelectric dimming; photosensor.;

    Abstract : Lighting accounts for one-fifth of global electricity use. In Sweden, energy demand for lighting corresponds to 20% of the total electricity use in office buildings. Lighting retrofit measures are considered to be among the most cost-efficient way to reduce energy use in buildings. READ MORE

  2. 2. Lighting Control Systems to Save Energy in the non-Residential Sector : State-of-the-art, Field Studies, and Simulations

    University dissertation from Division of Energy and Building Design

    Author : Niko Gentile; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017-10-27]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Indoor lighting; lighting control system; lighting control; energy sav; energy eff; user acceptan; degree of acceptance; human factor; occupancy strategy; presence strategy; absence strategy; daylight harvesting; daylight-linked; daylight; photoelectric dimming; photosensor; manual switch; functional illumination; standby;

    Abstract : This thesis examines the energy-saving potential for lighting when using traditional indoor LCSs in non-residential buildings. In the study, an overarching theoretical framework is used that distinguishes between energy efficiency and energy saving, as well as between energy use for lighting and functional illumination.

  3. 3. Lighting, Mood, and Seasonal Fatigue in Northern Argentina. Comparison to Countries Close to and Further from the Equator

    University dissertation from Environmental and Energy Systems Studies, Lund university

    Author : Graciela Tonello; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Environmental technology; temperature.; seasonal affective disorder; sadness; personality; mood; light; latitude; indoor lighting; chronobiology; circadian rhythms; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : The main problems in this thesis concern the impact of seasonal variations in daylight and ambient temperature on people's mood and the prevalence of various symptoms related to seasonal affective disorder. Questions are also raised about the role of the indoor environment and of the individual's personality as moderators of such an impact. READ MORE

  4. 4. Equilibrium User Centred Lighting Design Towards the development of a lighting design that is individually psychologically, physiologically and visually supportive

    University dissertation from Environmental and Energy Systems Studies, Lund university

    Author : Monica Säter; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Psychological; physiological and visual support.; User centred lighting design;

    Abstract : Why and in what way should daylight and artificial light be designed for the indoor environment in order to fulfil goals about visual comfort and light-related health? When the outdoor and indoor interactions of man, light, colour and space (MLCS) are compared to one other, the spectral component plays the decisive role (Hollwich 1979, p. 90). READ MORE

  5. 5. Energy efficiency in shopping malls. Energy use and indoor climate

    University dissertation from Environmental and Energy Systems Studies, Lund university

    Author : Sofia Stensson; SP – Sveriges Tekniska Forskningsinstitut / Energiteknik (ET).; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; energy use; loads; cooling; Shopping mall; simulation; heating; field measurements;

    Abstract : The purpose of this licentiate thesis is to describe energy use, heating and cooling demands and the relative importance of internal heat loads in shopping malls. It will be a foundation for a future doctorial thesis in which alternative energy efficient HVAC systems for shopping malls will be analysed. READ MORE
