  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. Do lighting control and user interface design matter to occupant behaviour? The case of optimal lighting use in non-residential buildings

    University dissertation from Division of Energy and Building Design

    Author : Pimkamol Mattsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; characteristic; design; energy reduction; energy-saving behaviour; lighting control; light switch; lighting use; non-residential building; perception; user interface;

    Abstract : The lowering of energy use from artificial lighting in buildings is vital to reaching the goal of reducing CO2 emissions. Hence, changes in individuals’ behaviours regarding lighting use have received increased attention. Feedback on energy use has often been used to change individuals’ behaviour. READ MORE

  4. 4. Validation of biomarkers and digital image analysis in breast pathology

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Oncology-Pathology

    Author : Gustav Stålhammar; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : For women worldwide, the risk of developing breast cancer is second only to that of nonmelanoma skin cancer. Significant improvements have been made in survival over the past decades and today about 80 % of the patients survive 10 years or more after their breast cancer diagnosis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Driving assessment and driving behaviour

    University dissertation from Jönköping : School of Health Sciences

    Author : Helena Selander; Högskolan i Jönköping.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : IntroductionDriving is an important part of everyday life and represents independence. Activities, both productive and social, may be affected if a person can no longer drive. Older drivers, as a group, have a low crash rate. READ MORE
