Lightswitch-2002: a model for manual and automated control of electric lighting and blinds
TLDR
A simulation algorithm is proposed that predicts the lighting energy performance of manually and automatically controlled electric lighting and blind systems in private and two-person offices and features four different user types to mimic variation in control behavior between different occupants.

Dynamic Daylight Performance Metrics for Sustainable Building Design
Abstract The objective of this document is to promote the use of dynamic daylight performance measures for sustainable building design. The paper initially explores the shortcomings of conventional,Expand
Validation of dynamic RADIANCE-based daylight simulations for a test office with external blinds
TLDR
The study encompasses the validation of the dynamic, RADIANCE-based daylight simulation method DAYSIM, which uses the concept of daylight coefficients and the Perez sky model to predict the short-time-step development of indoor illuminances, and it has been found that the treatment of direct sunlight strongly influences the accuracy of the daylight coefficient method.

DIVA 2.0: INTEGRATING DAYLIGHT AND THERMAL SIMULATIONS USING RHINOCEROS 3D, DAYSIM AND ENERGYPLUS
This paper describes a highly optimized design workflow for integrating detailed daylighting analysis using Radiance / DAYSIM with thermal load simulations using EnergyPlus within DIVA, a sustainableExpand
Urban building energy modeling – A review of a nascent field
Abstract Over the past decades, detailed individual building energy models (BEM) on the one side and regional and country-level building stock models on the other side have become established modesExpand
The daylighting dashboard – A simulation-based design analysis for daylit spaces
This paper presents a vision of how state-of-the-art computer-based analysis techniques can be effectively used during the design of daylit spaces. Following a review of recent advances in dynamicExpand
The ‘adaptive zone’ – A concept for assessing discomfort glare throughout daylit spaces
TLDR
It is found that applying the adaptive zone concept to a sidelit office with manually operated venetian blinds reduces the predicted hours of intolerable discomfort glare from 735 to 18 occupied hours per year and increases the annual mean daylight availability from 40% to 72%. Expand
Adding advanced behavioural models in whole building energy simulation: A study on the total energy impact of manual and automated lighting control
Behavioural models derived from on-going field studies can provide the basis for predicting personal action taken to adjust lighting levels, remedy direct glare, and save energy in response toExpand
Development and validation of a Radiance model for a translucent panel
This study describes the development and validation of a Radiance model for a translucent panel. Using goniophotometer data combined with integrating sphere measurements, optical properties of theExpand
