1.3

What you can do with Calculux Indoor


Perform lighting calculations (including direct, indirect, total and average illuminance) within orthogonal rooms; Predict financial implications including energy, investment, lamp and maintenance costs for different luminaire arrangements; Select luminaires from an extensive Philips database or from specially formatted files for luminaires from other suppliers; Specify room dimensions, luminaire types, maintenance factors, interreflection accuracy, calculation grids and calculation types; Compile reports displaying results in text and graphical formats; Support Switching modes and Light regulation factors; Support multiple languages. The logical steps used for project specification save you time and effort, while the report facility gives you the opportunity to keep permanent records of the results.

1.4

Tailor make your indoor design


Calculux Indoor is designed for use with six-sided orthogonal rooms. The dimensions of the room and the reflectance of each surface are entered by the user. Calculation grids can be defined anywhere in the room. You can also enter the maintenance factor and the required interreflection accuracy. These values will be used in all subsequent calculations.

1.5

Choose from a wide range of luminaires


Calculux is supplied with an extensive Philips database which includes the most advanced luminaires. For each luminaire you can view luminaire data, including the type of distributor, lamp type, output flux efficiency factors and power consumption. The light distribution can be shown in a Polar, Cartesian or Isocandela diagram, together with the luminaire quality figures. Apart from the Philips database, the following other well known luminaire data formats from other suppliers can be used in Calculux: CIBSE/TM14; EULUMDAT; IES; LTLI.

Introduction

1.6

Easy luminaire positioning individually or as a group


After you've made your luminaire selection, you can position and orientate luminaires individually or in groups, anywhere in a room. Luminaire data, including the type of distributor, lamp type, output flux and power consumption can be viewed at any time. In many lighting designs luminaires are often grouped in arrangements such as blocks, lines or circles. Calculux Indoor contains an option to define a number of arrangements. The position of the luminaires in such an arrangement is controlled by the arrangement rule but the orientation of each luminaire within an arrangement can be altered. It's even possible to free the luminaires positions so that they're no longer connected via the arrangement rule. This feature proves very useful e.g. when in a preliminary design a number of luminaires are placed on a line, but in the final stage one of the luminaires in the line doesn't entirely fulfil the line arrangement rule.

1.7

Symmetry lighting installation


Many designs contain a symmetric lighting installation. This simplifies luminaire arrangement entries where one or more of the luminaires have the same orientation. Calculux offers the possibility to include symmetry in the installation or a part of the installation.

1.8

Graphical manipulation of generated luminaires and/or aiming positions


Having defined luminaires as individuals or in arrangements, Calculux enables graphical manipulation (with a mouse) of the position and orientation of the luminaires. Graphical manipulation operates with the same arrangement rules.

1.9

Calculation Grids
After setting the luminaire arrangement, you're able to choose a preset grid or define your own for which the lighting calculations will be carried out. For example you wish to know if a particular combination of luminaires provides a sufficient level of light for a secretary's desk. By defining the desktop as a grid, the illuminance can be calculated and the results viewed on screen or printed. There's even a possibility to specify the number of points on the desktop at which the illuminance is calculated. On the other hand, if you don't want to define your own grid, frequently used grids corresponding to the room's six surfaces and the working plane are predefined to save you time. In many situations the indirect illuminance can be calculated by considering the room surfaces as diffuse sources which reflect the same amount of light at every point. When more accuracy is required, Calculux Indoor allows you to divide the room surfaces into cells which may reflect varying amounts of light. Up to 800 cells can be defined to give an extremely high level of accuracy. Calculux Indoor also provides a quick estimate of the number of luminaires of a particular type needed to provide a certain level of illuminance using the Utilisation Factor method.

Switching Modes
Calculux Indoor enables you to develop a lighting design in different switching modes. You can first generate a design for a conference room for video presentation and then by adding luminaires go on to generate a design for a conference situation.

1.11

Light Regulation Factor (LRF)


This Calculux option enables you to dim luminaires or luminaire arrangements

1.12

Save money by optimising cost-effectiveness


Cost is a major consideration when specifying a lighting installation. Calculux provides a breakdown of the costs you can expect to incur with a particular installation, both in terms of initial investment and annual running costs. Thus it's possible to support you in the decision making process by comparing the cost-effectiveness of different lighting arrangements.

1.13

See your lighting design develop on screen


A special view menu is provided to enable you to monitor the development of your project on screen. A 3-D as well as a number of 2-D project overviews can be displayed on screen. All overviews allow graphical manipulation of the luminaires (position and orientation). The view facility can also be used to study the calculated results in text and graphic format. Tables listing the calculated values are displayed. The view facility can also provide isotropic contours, mountain plots and graphic tables of the results.

1.14

Impress your customers with attractive reports


When you've finished a project you're able to generate attractive reports giving the results of the calculations. All you have to do is use the menu to select the elements which you wish to include in your report and they will be added automatically. For example, you can incorporate: A table of contents; 2-D and 3-D project overviews; Summary; Luminaire information (including Polar or Cartesian diagram); Detailed information about the calculation results (in textual table, graphical presentation and/or Iso contour); Financial data. It's also possible to add supplementary text. A convenient feature if you wish to comment on or draw conclusions from the results presented in the report.

When you start a new project in Calculux, it can be beneficial to enter summary information. This can include remarks and statistics about the project, e.g. name, date and designer, as well as customer details.

3.1.2

Vignette file
Calculux enables you to include details about yourself and your company in your reports. The information will be printed on the cover page of the reports and can be used for reference at any time. This provides the customer with contact details, should they need to consult you over the contents of the report. If you create what is called a Vignette file you can save the information to a disk. This eliminates the need to enter the same company information every time you open a new project. You can simply select the Vignette file to be included in your next project.

Room Characteristics
Surfaces: dimensions and reflectance
Calculux Indoor assumes that the room in which the luminaires are to be positioned is rectangular. Rooms are defined by using an XYZ-coordinate system in which the width is parallel to the x-axis, the length is parallel to the y-axis and the height is parallel to the zaxis. For positioning of the room the X and Y coordinates of the front bottom left corner of the room can be entered (P) you can press the 'Centre' button to place the centre of the room in the origin of the coordinate system O (0, 0, 0). This last option can be usefull, for example, when you want to apply symmetry.

3.2.2

Interreflection accuracy
Each of the room's six surfaces is considered to have a uniform reflectance. The interreflection accuracy you set obviously depends on how important interreflection is to your lighting design. If you choose a higher level of accuracy each room surface is divided into a number of subsurfaces (cells; max. 800) at which the lighting calculations will be performed. This requires longer calculation times.

Chapter 3 3.2.3 Quick Estimate

Background Information

If you wish you can enter a value for the Required Illuminance Level of the room in the Quick Estimate field of the Room dialogue box, e.g. enter "500lux." Later when you select a luminaire for your lighting design using the Add Room Block Arrangement dialogue box, an estimation of the number of this luminaires needed is provided. This estimation is done according to the CIE UF method.

( detailed information about 'Quick estimate' can be found in chapter 'Lighttechnical More
Calculations', section 'Quick Estimation'.

3.2.4

UF Method
When you add a luminaire from a database or PHILLUM file, the number of luminaires needed to provide the required illuminance level as entered in the Room dialogue box is automatically entered and displayed. The calculation is performed using the so called Utilisation Factor (UF) method described in CIE reports 40 and 52. If you click on the Generate button and you have entered a value for the 'number of luminaires needed' which is lower then the requested one, the program once more positions them according to the UF method. If no solution can be found, Calculux Indoor informs you, i.e. you'll receive a warning that the number of luminaires doesn't fit in the room. In some cases the database contains information about the maximum advisable spacing to height ratios of luminaires, in order to provide uniformity. If the number of luminaires calculated using the UF method doesn't comply with this ratio, then Calculux Indoor adds extra luminaires until it does. For example, suppose that by accident you've chosen a powerful industrial luminaire for use in an office. The UF method tells you that the number of luminaires needed to provide the required average illuminance level is 1. When you choose generate the view panel will display 4 luminaires necessary to comply with the spacing to height ratio. This would be very inefficient, so another luminaire should be chosen.

Chapter 3 3.2.5 Zones

Background Information

By using the Zones option and entering a value for the Border Zones you're able to define a working plane smaller than the room floor. Entering a value for a zone (left, right, front or back) will specify the distance between one of the walls and the working plane. The previous generated working plane calculations are now automatically spread over the reduced working plane.

Chapter 3 3.2.6 Room Grids

Background Information

To perform lighting calculations Calculux uses grids. A grid is a set of points in a 2 dimensional plane, at which the lighting calculations will be carried out. A grid must always be rectangular in shape and can be in any plane in space (horizontal, vertical or sloping). The size, position and the number of grid points can be specified by the user. Some special plane grids on walls and working planes (= Room Grids) will automatically be generated according to a standard. A standard defines the minimum number of grid points that is used for the lighting calculations. It also defines how these grid points are divided over the application area. The following standards are available: Calculux; NEN; DIN; CIBSE.

( detailed information about (Room) grids and the grid standards can be found in More
chapter 'Grids'.

Application Fields
General
In Calculux an application field is represented by a 2-Dimensional rectangular shape. Application fields can be used to graphically mark the area of interest for lighting calculations. Calculux includes a number of different applications. To differentiate between the types, they contain zero or more predefined lines and/or markings that are associated with the different applications. The outlines of the built-in sports fields have already been drawn, requiring only the name, dimensions and centre position to be entered. You can choose from: Tennis Court; Basketball Ground; Volleyball Ground; Indoor hockey Field; Ice hockey Field; Five-a-side football Pitch; Handball Court; Korfball Court; Badminton Court; Squash Court; Table Tennis Table; General Field. In Calculux, for each type of application field the default dimensions and grid settings can be entered. This allows local standards to be set, limiting the input requirements of the designer. Upon selection, Calculux automatically draws the application field using the default values. Calculux also generates a grid and a surface illuminance calculation on this grid. You are then free to change the dimensions, if necessary, to suit your personal design requirements. The general application field is an empty rectangular field. It can be used when you wish to perform calculations for an application not included in the above list. A general field operates like any other application field. You can connect a grid to a general field, ensuring that any changes made to the field parameters automatically change the grid parameters.

Connections with calculation Grids


A calculation grid usually lies within an application field. Calculux enables you to connect a grid to an application field, ensuring that any changes made to the field parameters automatically change the grid parameters. You can set a calculation grid for each application field. For an example demonstrating this feature see chapter 'Grids', section 'Grid Coupling'.

Luminaire Photometric Data


Calculux can retrieve luminaire photometric data from two different sources: A luminaire database; A specially formatted ASCII data file.

3.4.1

Luminaire Database
The luminaire database is supplied with Calculux and contains a wide range of luminaires from your supplier. The luminaire database, of which you want to select your project luminaires, can be selected in the Select Database dialogue box. When a database is selected, luminaire types for a particular application area can be selected in the Application Area dialogue box. For each luminaire, details about housing, light distributors, colour, lamps and luminous flux intensity are presented on screen in a logical, step-by-step way so that choosing a suitable luminaire for an application is easy. The default luminaire database and directory in which the luminaire database is stored is set in the Database tab of the Environment Options dialogue box (Options menu). If you wish to extend the range of luminaires you can save more than one database in this directory.

ASCII data file


Calculux is supplied with an extensive Philips luminaire database. New Philips luminaires that are not yet available in the database are sometimes supplied in specially formatted ASCII data file, the PHILips LUMinaires data format (PHILLUM). Apart from the Philips database and the PHILLUM format, Calculux allows you to use photometric data from other suppliers. The following other well known formats can be used in Calculux: CIBSE/TM14; EULUMDAT; IES; LTLI. Luminaire files are stored in the default directory. You can set the location of the default directory in the Directories tab of the Environment Options dialogue box (Options menu).

( interpretation of the above luminaire formats can differ. You should pay attention The

Luminaire Positioning and Orientation


Luminaire Positioning
XYZ-coordinates To position a luminaire, Calculux requires the use of the (three dimensional) coordinate system XYZ. The XLYLZL coordinates position the centre of the luminaire in relation to the origin of the coordinate system. The arrow in the following illustration indicates the centre of the light emitting area of the luminaire and represents the main axis of that particular luminaire.

C- coordinate system Each luminaire is given its own luminous intensity coordinate system, in order to provide information on its luminous flux distribution. In general, the C- coordinate system is used. To create the required luminous flux distribution in your design you'll need to define a new orientation for the luminaire. This is done by rotating and/or tilting the luminaire in relation to its (local) coordinate system. For indoor fluorescent luminaires the longitudinal axis of the lamp is called the C=90/C=270 axis. The lateral axis of the lamp (perpendicular to the longitudinal axis) is called the C=0/C=180 axis. For luminaires with an unusual shape, such as those used in outdoor applications, the mounting bracket is usually regarded as a reference which corresponds to the C=270 axis. The vertical axis of the lamp is normally called the =0/=180 axis. The following illustrations display the C- coordinate system for the three main luminaire types, being street, indoor and floodlighting.

Luminaire Orientation
Aiming types To determine the orientation of a luminaire you can use either: Aiming by defining a fixed point (XYZ); Aiming by defining fixed angles (RBA). Calculux enables you to aim the luminaires with RBA aiming type and view the generated aiming point by switching from RBA aiming to XYZ aiming (and vice versa). XYZ aiming If XYZ aiming is used, the luminaire orientation is determined by defining its aiming point. This is the point (P) towards which the main axis (=0) is directed, see figure below. The position of the aiming point P (Xp, Yp, Zp) is related to the global coordinate system. = Rot = Tilt90

Background Information

RBA aiming The luminaire is aimed (orientated) by defining fixed angles for Rot (around the vertical axis), Tilt90 (around the C=0/C=180 axis) and Tilt0 (around the C=90/C=270 axis). Rotation (Rot) If you wish to change the angle of rotation of the luminaire about its vertical axis, you need to enter a value in degrees for the variable 'Rot'. This value can be positive or negative. For example Rot = 45:

For example if the following sequence of processing is executed for a luminaire: 90 rotation about the vertical axis (Rot=90); 90 rotation about the C=0/C=180 axis (Tilt90=90); 90 rotation about the C=90/C=270 axis (Tilt0=90).

Conversion of Aiming types Conversion from RBA aiming to XYZ aiming The XYZ coordinates of the aiming points are locked on the aiming plane. Conversion from RBA-aiming to XYZ-aiming is only possible when the Tilt0 of the luminaire is 0. This restriction is included to prevent the loss of orientation information. The XYZ coordinates are blanked out in case the luminaire has to be displayed in XYZ-aiming, and there is no intersection with the aiming plane. In the case of a modification in the aiming type when there's no intersection with the aiming plane, the point on the aiming vector, one meter from the luminaire, is chosen as the aiming point. Conversion from XYZ aiming to RBA aiming The direction from the location of the luminaire to the aiming-point is determined. This direction is expressed in a Rotation, Tilt90 and Tilt0 (Tilt0 is always 0).

Selecting Aiming Presentation types

Background Information

Calculux allows you to select either RBA aiming presentation to display the Rot, Tilt90 and Tilt0 aiming angles, or XYZ aiming presentation to display the aiming points. If the selected aiming presentation is different from the used aiming type, Calculux will convert the unit for aiming into the unit as selected for the aiming presentation. In this way it is possible to view the value of the aiming angles while the used aiming type is XYZ aiming or aiming points while the used aiming type is RBA aiming. The aiming presentation of luminaires can be set in the luminaires list. Conversion from RBA aiming presentation to XYZ aiming presentation for a luminaire is only possible when Tilt0=0. This restriction is included to prevent the loss of orientation information. When a luminaire, aimed with RBA aiming, has to be displayed in XYZ aiming and there's no intersection with the aiming plane, the XYZ coordinate values are blanked out.

( Conversion of the aiming presentation type does not change the aiming type!

Aiming offset (Floodlights) For some asymmetric flood lighting luminaires an aiming offset is given and stored in the database. It can be viewed in the project luminaire details dimensions tab. The aiming offset is usually equal to the angle of the maximum intensity in the C=90 plane.

Background Information

For a luminaire with an aiming offset the photometric data is treated with respect to the aiming of the luminaire as if the maximum intensity is at C=0 and =0. Aiming the above luminaire with an aiming offset of degrees at Rot=0 and Tilt90=0 gives the orientation displayed next.

To ensure that the front glass of the luminaire is horizontal, the aiming should be Rot=0 and Tilt90=.

Number of luminaires per position (Luminaire Quantity)


Normally there will be one luminaire at each luminaire position. In some special cases it can be very useful to use a different number of luminaires, for instance; When a group of 5 luminaires (floodlights) with the same aiming point is situated on a pole, these luminaires can technically be regarded as one luminaire. In this case you can enter a luminaire quantity of 5. When in a block arrangement at one particular luminaire position no luminaire can be installed.

To simplify the definition of an arrangement, Calculux contains the 'Arranged Luminaires' option. The luminaires in an arrangement are positioned and aimed according to the arrangement rule and are stored under the 'arrangement name'. The arrangement generation rules relate to all arrangements (where applicable) and are explained here for the following arrangements: Room Block; Block; Polar; Line; Free.

A Free arrangement is a special kind of arrangement allowing the luminaires to be positioned individually. The only thing they share is a common arrangement name. In the case of a Block, Line, Polar or Room Block arrangement, the luminaire positions are controlled by the arrangement rule. The other attributes can be set individually. In general, for each arrangement the following luminaire attributes (if applicable) must be set: Project luminaire Type; Position of the arrangement; Orientation of the arrangement (Aiming); Symmetry type and relevant symmetry origin; Number of Same (luminaires per position); Switching mode(s). To simplify the definition of the attributes, the arrangements dialogue box is split into the following four tab pages.

Room Block Arrangement


A Room Block arrangement is a special type of Block arrangement where the luminaires are arranged in a rectangular room. Arrangement Definition There are two ways to define a Room Block arrangement: a) You can create a Room Block arrangement using the UF Method (see also chapter 'Room'; section 'UF Method'). The following parameters have to be set: Luminaire Type; Orientation of the luminaires; Name of the arrangement. If you press the Generate button a regular luminaire pattern will automatically be generated at the ceiling of the room. The number of generated luminaires depends on the value you've entered in the 'Required Illuminance Level' field of the 'Room' dialogue box. The number of luminaires will only be calculated if the information for the UF Method is included in the Data base.

(required you can change the value of the 'Number of Luminaires needed'. If the value If

After you have positioned a luminaire arrangement, you may wish to adjust the position of the individual luminaires slightly. When you Ungroup a luminair arrangement, the luminaires are no longer part of an arrangement but individual luminaires. It is then possible to, change, delete or replace each luminaire individually.

Symmetry
General
Symmetry is an optional specification, that can be used to simplify individual luminaire or luminaire arrangement entries when one or more luminaires have a symmetrical orientation and/or position. If applied, the luminaires are duplicated on the opposite side of a line parallel to the X-axis or Y-axis or they are duplicated to all quadrants. The use of symmetry in luminaire positioning and orientation is explained with the following example: Assume that you've created an indoor sports hall of width 80m and length 140m. The default position of the Front Bottom Left corner (reference point or P.) of the sports hall will be located at the origin of the XYZ co-ordinate system.
Y

140

P
O 80

The easiest way to position two identical luminaires at opposite corners of the sports hall is to position one luminaire and apply symmetry to the lighting installation to position the second luminaire. If you would do this without first translating the origin of the XYZ coordinate system to the centre of the sports hall, the new luminaire would be positioned outside the room. In this case an error message would appear on your screen. In order to apply symmetry to the lighting installation in a room you'll need to position the origin of the plane(s) of symmetry inside the room. E xample: You want to position two identical floodlights, orientated towards the centre, at the opposite corners of a sports hall (width 80m and length 140m). The axis you want to use to apply symmetry are equal to the X = 0 and Y=0 axis. In this case, the centre of the sports hall has to be in the origin (O).

( defining the dimensions of the sports hall you can position the origin (O) at the After
centre of the sports hall by clicking on the 'Centre' button (Room Definition tab). Calculux - 3.36 Indoor

If the axis you want to use to apply symmetry is not equal to a central axis of the room, you'll have to change the settings of the X-origin or Y-origin (placing the plane of symmetry in the middle between the existing and the 'new' luminaire). You can do this in several ways: For all new created luminaires in a project this is done by replacing the settings of the Xorigin and/or Y-origin in the Symmetry tab (Project Options). For luminaires in a luminaire arrangement this is done by replacing the settings of the Xorigin and/or Y-origin in the Luminaire Definition tab (Arranged Luminaires), then clicking on the Apply button. For individual luminaires or individual luminaires in an arrangement this is done by replacing the settings of the X-origin and/or Y-origin in the Luminaires tab (Individual Luminaires) or Luminaire List tab (Arranged Luminaires).

Remember that symmetry is not only applied to the position of the luminaire, but also to its orientation: e.g. X-symmetry of a luminaire at coordinates (-35, 65, 10) resulted in a new luminaire on (35, 65, 10) which was rotated automatically so that it's still orientated towards the centre (0, 0, 0). Applying symmetry about the Y-axis to a lighting design does not automatically imply a symmetric light distribution. This is only the case if the luminaire is symmetric about its C=90...C=270 plane.

Grids
General
A grid is an area containing a specific number of points at which lighting calculations are carried out. A grid must always be rectangular in shape and can be in any plane in space (horizontal, vertical or sloping). It is useful to think of a grid as an invisible surface to which a light meter can be attached. The amount of light measured by the light meter changes as it is moved to different points on the surface. It also changes if the light meter is moved from one side of the surface to another. There are two types of calculation grids: Generated grids; User defined (Free added) grids.

3.9.2

Generated grids
Calculux Indoor allows you to choose seven preset grids which lay on the six surfaces of the room and the working plane. Details about the grid (like position, number of points) are derived from the selected standard: CIBSE, DIN, NEN or Calculux. The 'Calculux' standard is a grid type which has been developed by Philips Lighting after years of practical experience in indoor lighting applications. Preset grids are a convenient feature when you do not want to define a grid yourself, or when you need to conform to the standards above. You can also use the preset grids as an aid to defining your own grid. For example, if you wish to define a grid parallel to the left wall (x=0) but shifted 1 m towards the centre of the room, then all you have to do is to disconnect the grid by selecting Grid Points Method 'No Rule'. Now you can change the x coordinates of three of the grid's corner points from 0.0 to 1.0. Calculux standard grids Working plane The working plane is defined as the area at working plane height which remains when a border zone is subtracted from the room. Grid points are spaced over the working plane. The distance from the first grid point to the border zone is 0.5 times the spacing between the rest of the grid points. The number of calculation points along either side of the grid is calculated with the following equation:

Background Information

This equation is subjected to the following constraints: Up to 6 meters the maximum spacing between grid points is 0.5 m; The maximum number of grid points is 12 and the minimum number is 5. Room Surfaces For each of the room surfaces, the number of calculated grid points and the spacing between the grid points is according to the above rules. E xample: In a room measuring 5.4 x 3.6 x 3.0 m (l x w x h) with a border of 0.5 m the number of grid points on the working plane for a CLX type grid have to be calculated. Using the above formula this will give the following result: The number of grid points in width direction a width of grid = width of room - (2 x border) 3.6 - 1 = 2.6 b Int (
width of grid 0.5 Int (6.2) = 6 + 1) = Int ( 2.6 + 1) 0.5

c Number of grid points (width) Min (12,6) =6 The number of grid points in length direction a length of grid = length of room - (2 x border) 5.4 1 = 4.4 b Int (+1) = Int (+1) Int (9.8) =9 c Number of grid points (length) Min (12,9) =9 As both calculated values are greater than 5 and less than 12, they are acceptable NEN standard grids Working plane The working plane is defined as the area at working plane height which remains when a border zone is subtracted from the room. The default value for the border zone should be set to 0.6 m. However, it's possible to set a different border for each side of the working plane. Grid points are divided over the remaining area. The distance from the first grid point to the border is 0.5 times the spacing between the rest of the grid points. The spacing in the length and width directions should not be greater than the smallest of the following values: 1/3 x (Luminaire height - working plane height). If luminaires are positioned at different heights in the room, or have yet to be positioned, the room height is taken as the height of the luminaire position.

Room Surfaces The number of calculation points along either side of a grid corresponding to one of the room's surfaces can be calculated with the aid of the following equation: Number of grid points = Min (12, Int(
side 0.5 + 1))

This equation is subject to the following constraints: The maximum spacing between grid points is 0.5 m; The maximum number of grid points is 12 and the minimum number is 5. DIN standard grids Working plane The grid points are divided over the working plane. The distance from the first grid point to the border is 0.5 times the spacing between the rest of the grid points. In the DIN standard it's recommended to set the border zone to 0. The number of grid points is related to the length of the side of the grid under consideration as follows: Length of side is 0 till 2 m use 7 grid points; Length of side is 2 till 5 m use 8 grid points; Length of side is 5 till 8 m use 9 grid points; Length of side is 8 till 10 m use 10 grid points; Else use 12 grid points. Room Surfaces The number of grid points and their spacing for each of the room surfaces is the same as above. CIBSE standard grids Working plane The working plane is defined as the area at working plane height which remains when a border zone is subtracted from the room. Grid points are divided over the working plane. The distance between the grid points should be approximately a meter. Calculux meets these requirements by setting a grid to fill the working plane with the first grid point at a half grid spacing from the edge of the border. The number of calculation points along either side of the grid is calculated with the aid of the following equation: Number of grid points = Min (12, Int(
side 1 + 1))

Room Surfaces The number of grid points and the spacing between them follows the same rules as above for each of the room surfaces.

3.9.3

User defined (Free added) grids


Calculux enables you to define your own grids, or to change the specifications of existing grids. If a grid lies on one of the room surfaces, the lighting calculations should be made for the inner side of the surface. If a grid lies within the room (a virtual grid), the user must specify the side of the grid (1 or 2) on which the calculations are performed.

Size and position of a grid: points A, B and C A grid is defined by specifying the X, Y and Z coordinates of the three reference corners A, B and C. The 4th reference corner is calculated automatically because the grid is a rectangle. Usually point A is considered the bottom left corner of the grid, so when this is the case, the reference corners are as follows: A = The bottom left corner of the grid B = The bottom right corner of the grid C = The top left corner of the grid

The following rules apply to grids: a) The vectors (AB) and (AC) cannot be zero and must be perpendicular. A small deviation from perpendicularity is allowed, Calculux will correct this automatically. This is especially useful when a person, using a system with limited accuracy, has to specify the corners of a grid with sides that are not parallel to the axis of the coordinate system. b) The reference corners A, B and C can not be on one line.

Calculation points in a grid The number of calculation points you define in AB and AC direction is used to divide the grid into equal parts. These are the points at which the lighting calculations will be carried out. There is always a calculation point on each corner. For example, if you set both numbers of points in AB and AC direction to 4, the total number of grid points is 4 x 4 = 16, see figure below. The lighting calculations are performed at each of these points. Distance between calculation grid points:
D= Total length of vector (Nr.of grid points along vector) - 1

The number of divisions along (vector) AB and AC is the number of grid points along that vector - 1. In the figure below, the distance between the calculation grid points in AB and AC direction is:

Default side It is usually obvious on which side of the grid (it has two sides) the calculations are to be carried. However, for some calculations, such as surface illuminance and luminance it is not always obvious and therefore becomes necessary to define the default side of the grid. The default side of the grid is related to the orientation of A, B and C and is determined using the right hand rule. The direction of the arrow (the normal vector on the grid area) indicates the side of the grid which is the default. This is always the case unless it is specified otherwise.

Grid coupling Calculux enables you to connect a grid to an application field, (a calculation grid usually lies within an application field) ensuring that any changes made to the field parameters automatically change the grid parameters. You can set a calculation grid default for each application field type in the application field defaults dialogue box. The following example demonstrates these principles:

Background Information

This aspect of Calculux is very user-friendly: you'll begin to appreciate the benefits of grid coupling when you start building your own projects. For connecting a grid to an application field the following grid point methods are possible: No Rule When a grid is connected to a application field with 'No Rule', there will be no relation between the definition of the grid and the definition of the field. The grid is defined by the corner points (A, B and C), the number of points in the AB and AC direction, and the direction of the normal vector. The grid will remain at the same position when the application field is moved and will also be deleted if the application field is deleted. Points Leading Along each dimension (i.e. length and width of the application field) the number of calculation grid points is defined. These points will be evenly spread over the surface of the application field starting at the edge or at half spacing from the edge, depending on your selection. Once your selections have been made, Calculux calculates the positions of A, B and C displaying the grid in the view box. In the following figure the number of calculation grid points along AB is 7, starting at half spacing from the edge. This gives a spacing of 10m. (between calculation points).

Once your selections have been made, Calculux calculates the positions of A, B and C displaying the grid in the view box. In the following figure the spacing between the calculation grid points along AB is 10m. The centre point of the dimension of the application field is not included, giving: The first point at X = +2.5m; The last point at X = +72.5m.

The distance between the application area and the border grid point is, at a maximum, half that of the spacing. In case spacing leading is used, the calculation grid can be larger than the application field to which it is connected. To include the grid within the field, switch between 'Mid Point at Centre' included 'Yes' or 'No'. Normal vector of a grid The normal vector is perpendicular to the plane of the grid and is defined by using the right-handed coordinate system. Presentation of results When the results of lighting calculations are presented in a textual table, they have a particular format. The calculated results for point A always appear at the bottom left corner of the table, the results for point B at the bottom right corner and the results for C at the top left corner, for example: A: x = 0.25 B: x = 3.75 C: x = 0.25 y y y = 0.25 = 0.25 = 5.75 z z z = 0.00 = 0.00 = 0.00

Shapes
A shape is a surface area in the same plane as a grid. Shapes can be used to create a userdefined form on the rectangular grid which is excluded from the calculations. Virtually any kind of form can be created. Shapes are connected to a grid, therefore shapes can only be added after a grid is defined. If multiple shapes are defined for a grid, each shape has an unique name. In Calculux, shapes can be set active or inactive. Active and inactive shapes Each shape can be set active or inactive individually. Only grid points not covered, or covered by inactive shapes will be used for calculation by Calculux. The shapes on a grid cover a grid point if at least one active shape covers the grid point. In Calculux shapes can be defined in two ways: Pre-defined shapes User-defined shapes

3.10.1

Pre-defined shapes
In Calculux, some application fields use a connected grid other than the standard rectangle. For these application fields a set of pre-defined shapes is used to create different application field outlines. If the size of the grid is changed, the position and size of the shapes is updated automatically. The user cannot change or delete these pre-defined shapes, but can duplicate or add a shape. A duplicated shape will be a user-defined shape. Each predefined shape can be set active or inactive.

3.10.2

User-defined shapes
On all calculation grids the user can add shapes by specifying the required input parameters. The user can add, change, duplicate or delete shapes. A user-defined shape can be set active or inactive. In Calculux, the following shape types can be defined by the user: Set of points Rectangle Closed polygon Arc

Set of points

Background Information

The set of points shape can be used to cover individual grid points. This is especially useful when a few grid points at the edge of an application field or next to a generated shape must be excluded for calculation by Calculux. It only has effect when real grid positions are excluded. A point can be entered between grid points but will have no effect.

Coordinates can be entered using the dialogue box. However, coordinates which are exactly on a grid point can also be entered simply by mouse-clicking on the grid point in the view box. Notes: Points within 5mm from a grid point are taken as that grid point. When the number of grid points is changed, it is possible that the selected points are no longer on a calculation point. Rectangle The rectangle shape can be used to create rectangular shapes. It is defined by its lower left corner position (relative to point A of the grid), width and length.

Lighting control (Switching Modes / Light Regulation Factor)


In many designs the lighting system must be flexible so that the lighting level can be adapted to suit the activities for which the facility is to be used. The Calculux 'Lighting control' feature enables you to dim luminaires or luminaire arrangements. When using a 'Lighting Control' system you can: Save energy When light sensors are used you can automatically dim luminaires in areas where the amount of daylight increases. By means of movement detectors you can automatically switch of luminaires when an area is not 'occupied'. In this way an energy saving of up to 70% can be achieved. Increase the flexibility of the lighting installation When infrared remote control is available, the need for vertical wiring to wall switches is eliminated; Reduction of the installation costs; Less costly adaptations to the electrical system, when the furniture layout is changed. Create more comfort for the user When pre-programmed lighting levels are available, the user can switch or regulate the lighting installation to the required lighting level. In Calculux you can create a 'Lighting Control' system using: a) Switching Modes b) Light Regulation Factors

3.11.1

Switching Modes
A switching mode is a subset of luminaires which are in operation. For example, you can first generate a design for a conference room for video presentation and then by adding luminaires go on to generate a design for a conference situation. In this way the lighting level can be adapted to suit the activities for which the facility is to be used.

3.11.2

Light Regulation Factor (LRF)


This option enables you to dim luminaires or luminaire arrangements. By using this option you can save energy, increase the flexibility of the lighting installation or create more comfort for the user. The value of the light regulation factor is expressed in % of the lumen output of a luminaire.

( is no linear relation between the value of the light regulation factor and the power There

consumption of a luminaire. As a result of this, when light regulation factors are used, the power consumption of the luminaire can not be calculated. So in the cost calculation the energy costs will not be given.

Drawings
A drawing is a 2-dimensional shape which you can add to your lighting design. A drawing may be a rectangle, arc, line or text. It is unlikely that you will need to add a drawing within an application field, as all the required areas are automatically included. You are more likely to place a drawing outside an application field to to illustrate your design (e.g. to represent a nearby construction). Be aware that if you move the centre coordinates of an application field, the drawing you've added will not move. Drawings appear on screen and in your printed reports if selected, but do not affect your calculations or scaling. The name and dimensions must be entered before a drawing can be included in a project. The exception is the text option. For this drawing, entering the name, the XYZ coordinates of where the centre of the text should be and the actual text is all that is required. You may wish to use a rectangular drawing e.g. for indication of luminaire positions, desks, conference tables, obstructions etc.

Light-technical Calculations
Calculux Indoor currently supports the following calculation type: Plane illuminance Unified Glare Rating

3.13.1

Plane Illuminance
This is the ratio of the luminous flux incident on an infinitely small flat surface to the area of that surface. The surface can have any orientation. The orientation is defined by the normal vector on the surface.

Y
P

d Ip

X
The plane illuminance (from one light source) at point P on the calculation grid is given by:
Ep = Ip d2 Cos

Variables: Ep Ip d

Meaning: Plane illuminance at point P Luminous intensity from the light source in the direction of point P Distance from the source to point P (m) Angle between the normal n and the light incidence

This formula assumes that the luminaire is a point source. For fluorescent luminaires, of which the distance between the luminaire and the point P is short in comparison with dimensions of the luminaire, the above formula is not valid. Calculux has a built-in feature (luminaire split-up) which overcomes this problem. When the luminaire split-up feature is activated, the luminaire is considered to be made up of a number of smaller luminaires with the same light distribution but proportionally smaller lumen output. The following types of surface orientation information relating to each point on the grid are recognised by Calculux.

Glare
Glare is the condition of vision in which there is a reduction in the ability to see details or objects due to an unsuitable distribution or range of luminance, or to extreme contrasts. Glare can occur in one of two possible forms: Disability glare glare that impairs the vision; Discomfort glare glare that induces a feeling of discomfort. For indoor Lighting the measure for discomfort glare is called the UGR factor. UGR is explained in the following section.

Calculux - 3.62 -

Indoor

Chapter 3

Background Information

UGR The Unified Glare Rating, UGR, is a measure for the amount of discomfort glare in an indoor lighting installation. A lower glare rating results in a better glare restriction. The practical meaning of the range of the glare assessment scale is from 10 (unnoticeable) to 30 (unbearable). For the calculation of the UGR the CIE formula is used: UGR = 8 log{0.25/Lb L Variables: UGR Lb

Meaning: unified glare rating. background luminance, determined by the lighting, the room size and the reflectances. It is calculated from the vertical illuminance caused by interreflections on the observer's eye. luminance of the luminaire in the direction of the observer's eye. solid angle of the luminous parts of the luminaire as seen by the observer. position index of the luminaire (a value given by CIE typical for the displacement of the luminaire from the line of sight).

To get insight in the overall effect of glare from a lighting installation, an UGR calculation for reference conditions as specified in the CIE tabular method is most suitable. The resulting single value (called in Calculux UGRCIE), is the value against which specifications can easily be checked. For detailed glare rating evaluations, Calculux has also the possibility to calculate UGR values for non-reference conditions. In this case the observers are situated in a given grid at each grid point. For four mutual perpendicular viewing directions with parallel and crosswise view, individual UGR values can be calculated. The line of sight is always horizontal and the eye height is given by the grid parameters. CIE tabular method reference conditions for UGR CIE specifies reference conditions (according to the tabular method) for the calculation of UGR. The resulting single UGR value is called in Calculux UGRCIE tabular method. It is the most typical value for the overall effect of glare from the total lighting installation. The reference conditions are: Luminaire geometry: luminaire spacing in both directions 0.25 H, with H being the vertical distance between the observer eye and the luminaire. Observer position: against the middle of the respective walls at 1.2 m above the floor with horizontal viewing directions perpendicular to the wall.

UGR contribution = L2 /p2


The Luminance (L) and the solid angle are calculated by Calculux. P is taken from the Guth Position Index Table: Background luminance The background luminance, Lb, is defined as that uniform luminance of the whole surroundings which produces the same illuminance on a vertical plane at the observer's eye as the visual field under consideration excluding the glare sources. It may be obtained from the formula: Lb = Ei/ where Ei is the indirect illuminance at the eye of the observer (lux). The indirect illuminance is the illuminance on the eye caused by the luminance of the walls (direct illuminance from the light sources is not taken in to account). Output The output format of the calculation of point values will be presented in a textual grid, analogous to Calculux's vertical illuminance output. The values will be presented as rounded whole figures. The average, min/ave and min/max values are not calculated and will not be printed in this output. At the top of the output page the UGRCIE value will be presented, if defined. Also in the summary the UGRCIE values will be output per switching mode, that is, if they are defined and applicable.

Chapter 3 3.13.3 Indirect contribution

Background Information

The amount of light reaching a point depends on the direct contribution from the luminaires and on the indirect contribution reflected from the room's surfaces. Calculux Indoor calculates the indirect contribution by dividing the room's surfaces (cells) into a number of subsurfaces which are assumed to be area light sources with uniform radiance. The number of subsurfaces is defined with the 'interreflection accuracy level' which is set Room dialogue box. Since the total illuminance at a point includes the direct contribution plus the contribution of the subsurfaces, the more subsurfaces you have the more accurate your results will be. The direct contribution on each surface is calculated by placing a grid on each subsurface and deriving the incident illuminance from each luminaire according to the equation for the plane illuminance (see section 'Plane Illuminance'). The individual values are added up and averaged to give the total average illuminance on each surface. From the average direct contribution, the complete interreflection matrix is solved to calculate the average total radiance on each surface. Then from each surface the contribution to a point is calculated. When the room's surfaces are not divided into smaller subsurfaces, the so-called 6-plane interreflection model is used. This model corresponds to a normal interreflection accuracy level setting in the Room dialogue box.

( Indirect Contribution can only be calculated when the surfaces in the grid points, The

used in the calculation, are orientated towards the positive or negative X-,Y- or Z-direction.

When you add a luminaire from a database or PHILLUM file, Calculux can give you a quick estimation of the number of luminaires needed to provide the required illuminance level. The calculation is done according the so called Utilisation Factor (UF) method. Quick Estimation If you enter the required illuminance level (in the Room dialogue box), Calculux will be able to determine a quick estimation of the number of luminaires needed. This calculation is done for each luminaire individually and is performed according to the UF (Utilisation Factor) method described in CIE reports 40 and 52.
N= EL W NL F MF UF

Utilisation Factor (UF)

Background Information

The Utilisation Factor is calculated according to the lumen method. This method uses the CIE flux code of the luminaire, the room's dimensions and the reflection properties of its surfaces to perform the calculation. The room's dimensions are characterised by the room index K, defined as:
K= LW (H1 - H 0 ) (L + W)

Where the variables are: L = room length W = room width = room height H1 = height of the working plane H0 The Utilisation Factor can be found when the room index and the reflectance of the room are known. They are tabulated as part of the luminaire photometric data. Strictly speaking, the UF method is only valid if the luminaire arrangement and the room dimensions are exactly the same as those in the CIE reports. However, experience shows that the values are valid for most practical situations. The UF method of calculating the number of luminaires is used as a rough indication. A point calculation can always be performed. For this reason Calculux Indoor only uses the CIE method of calculating the utilisation factor as the differences between it and other methods (DIN, CIBSE, etc.) are quite small. The table below shows an example of room index values for a typical luminaire. Utilisation Factor Table TBS 300/236 M6 2XTL-D36W/840

Uniformity Check

Background Information

In some instances, the database contains information about the maximum advisable spacing to height ratios of luminaires which provide good uniformity. These values are taken into account in the Quick estimation and can sometimes lead to a greater number of luminaires than required to provide the average illuminance level. The uniformity check is restricted to checking the minimum numbers in length and width. This check is performed only if the luminaire maximum spacing to height ratio is given in the database. The uniformity check is based on the values as given in the data base. These values are calculated for a grid of 4 times 4 luminaires. The uniformity is calculated in the square of the middle four luminaires (as set out in CIBSE TM5).

Maintenance Factor/New Value Factor


The Maintenance Factor is the ratio of the average illuminance on the plane under investigation after a specified period of use of the lighting installation, to the average illuminance obtained under the same conditions for a new installation. It is always equal or less than 1 and is used as a multiplier for calculations, based on luminaire light distribution tables. In some countries the New Value Factor (or Inverse Maintenance Factor) is used. Calculux allows you to use new value factors instead of maintenance factors. The 'Inverse Maintenance Factor' is always more than or equal to 1. The following maintenance factors are specified: General Project Maintenance Factor; Luminaire Type Maintenance Factor; Lamp Maintenance Factor.

3.16.1

General Project Maintenance Factor


This maintenance factor takes into account a general factor with which all calculation results are multiplied. It acts as a safeguarding factor and must reflect the overall conditions of the room surfaces. The value of the 'Project Maintenance Factor' is always equal or less than 1.

3.16.2

Luminaire Type Maintenance Factor


This maintenance factor takes into account the reduction of light output caused by dirt deposited on or in a luminaire. The rate at which the dirt is deposited depends on the construction of the luminaire and the extent of what dirt is present in the environment. The value of the 'Luminaire Type Maintenance Factor' is always equal or less than 1.

3.16.3

Lamp Maintenance Factor


The Lamp Maintenance Factor value is always equal or less than 1 and consists of two elements: a) Lamp Survival Factor; b) Lamp Lumen Depreciation Factor. a) Lamp Survival Factor This maintenance factor takes into account the percentage of the lamp failures during a specific number of operation hours. It is only applicable when a group replacement is to be carried out. The 'Lamp Survival Factor' is based on the assumptions about the switching cycle, supply voltage and control gear. b) Lamp Lumen Depreciation Factor. This maintenance factor takes into account the fact that the luminous output of all lamps decreases with use.

Date: Customer: Designer: Description: 27-04-1999 P. Tan T. Gielen Design for desk, conference and presentation lighting using light regulation factors (LRF)

The nominal values shown in this report are the result of precision calculations, based upon precisely positioned luminaires in a fixed relationship to each other and to the area under examination. In practice the values may vary due to tolerances on luminaires, luminaire positioning, reflection properties and electrical supply.
