This paper describes a computationally-based energy performance analysis of a predictive simulation-supported approach to lighting systems control in buildings. Using real-time sensing and embedded numeric lighting simulation in the control logic, this system can dynamically control the position of window blinds and the status (on/off, dimming level) of the luminaires. To explore the energy efficiency potential of this lighting control approach, it was compared to four conventional control scenarios via a virtual implementation in an office building. The results point to the considerable energy saving potential of the simulation assisted control strategy, which also provides a better basis for the integration of multiple performance indicators (including those pertaining to visual comfort, thermal comfort, and energy use) in the control process.
