Synopsis:

Lighting needs to be understand as complex issue, overlapping between technical and non-technical disciplines. The forthcoming European standard on daylight in buildings introduces new approaches to assess the quality of the lighting environments in buildings; a number of new technologies and tools are available to measure and optimize lighting inside and outside buildings.

Using these tools, light-technical tasks are addressed within the D24SST, focusing on providing visual comfort, controlling for health aspects and taking into account the use of the room. A suitable compromise is sought between numerous requirements of the quality of the indoor environment, energy, economic and operational parameters.

The practical use of the measuring instruments is an inseparable part of the course in the determination of selected lightning technical quantities and parameters. Illuminance, luminance, the property of a material to transmit light, the influence of pollution, the influence of light reflection etc. count among them.
