During the completion of my thesis I got to see how a Smart Illumination Control System is built up, the parts it is made of and the theoretical problems behind it. At the beginning of my work I became familiar with basic office designs and what kind of considerations have to be made and what kind of requirements must it met.
To make the calculations necessary to design a lighting system, find a lamp that meets the goal and find the optimal locations for the lamps I learnt to use the Python programming language and its plotting module, the matplotlib. I got acquainted with the DIALux lighting design software which I used to check the results of my program.
I approximated using the program I wrote which would be the optimal lamp locations, assuming no external light. After it was ready I devised a method to determine the thermal and optical effects of the external light, than I designed a Smart Illumination Control System with the logic of its controller program which can efficiently regulate the room temperature and illuminance. Also accounted all the peripherals how can they be used as part of a smart system and what kinds suit this purpose and in which configuration.
Then I designed a model based on the room design and designed its control system with peripherals and wrote a program which can control the model and simulate any part of the day.
