English abstract:
We present a prototypically implemented and
empirically tested daylight-responsive lighting
systems control in buildings that makes use of realtime
sensing and lighting simulation. This system can
control the position of window blinds and the status
of the luminaires. It operates as follows: (1) At
regular time intervals, the system considers a set of
candidate control states for the subsequent time step;
(2) These alternatives are then virtually enacted via
lighting simulation. (3) The simulation results are
compared and ranked according to the preferences
(objective function) specified by the occupants
and/or facility manager to identify the candidate
control state with the most desirable performance.
