  1. 1. Lighting simulation for a more value-driven building design process

    University dissertation from Lund : Miljöpsykologiska enheten, Institutionen för arkitektur, Lunds tekniska högskola

    Author : Anahita Davoodi; Thorbjörn Laike; Peter Johansson; Annika Moscati; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; lighting simulation; lighting design; lighting quality; energy efficiency; perception;

    Abstract : Concerns about global warming are increasing, hence, the urgency to cut carbon emissions. Reducing energy consumption, including lighting energy, is seen as the primary solution. Yet, solving the environmental factor should not come at the cost of other pillars of sustainable development. 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; [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. Urban outdoor lighting : Pedestrian perception, evaluation and behaviour in the lit environment

    University dissertation from Department of Architecture and Built Environment, Lund University

    Author : Johan Rahm; [2019-05-17]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Outdoor lighting; Street lighting; Pedestrian; Walking; Walkability; Perceived safety; Urban design; Perception; Environmental psychology; Elderly; Mobility;

    Abstract : Walking plays an essential role in sustainable transport systems, as nearly all journeys in the urban environment incorporate walking in one way or another. In parts of the world, for long periods of the year, seasonal variation in daylight hours means that pedestrians must rely on outdoor lighting to make cities accessible after dark. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Department of Architecture and Built Environment, Lund University

    Author : Sofia Stensson; [2010]
    Keywords : 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

  5. 5. Energy Usage in Supermarkets - Modelling and Field Measurements

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Jaime Arias; Per Lundqvist; Denis Clodic; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Supermarket; Energy Performance; System Analysis; Modelling; Simulation; Field Measurements; Refrigeration Systems; Indirect Systems; Heat Recovery; Floating Condensing; TEWI; LCC.; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates a special type of energy system, namely energy use in supermarkets through modelling, simulations and field studies. A user-friendly computer program, CyberMart, which calculates the total energy performance of a supermarket, is presented. READ MORE
