Summary
In the theoretical part of the class we deal with application of modern light sources and luminaires to outdoor and indoor space. There is emphasis on the new calculating methods of luminances, illuminances and glares. There are explained principals of intelligent operating systems.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
After taking this class student is able to: define chosen special terminology from the area of lighting, describe and explain complicated calculating methods while dealing with lighting systems, calculate quality data interrelated to suggested system, interpret findings and engineer thinking together with intelligent control systems.
