About Course

Lighting design involves the use of software Applications such as Dialux Evo to calculate and display the 3D visualization of luminaries installation in a building and the photometric distribution.

A well-designed lighting system provides just the right amount of light for its intended application: less lumens yield poor performance, but more lumens represent wasted energy. Like in any building system design, the optimal capacity can only be specified with an adequate calculation procedure. Lighting designers use the photometric data of proposed fixtures as a starting point. For the calculation procedure they consider the project’s location, indoor or outdoor, as well as environmental conditions like temperature and dirt.
The purpose of lighting calculation is to reach a suitable illuminance level for the intended application. The concept of illuminance describes lighting delivered per unit of area, and it is typically measured in foot-candles (lumens per square foot) or lux (lumens per square meter).
