Implementation of the Lighting Control Algorithms in the KNX System Whitepaper

Abstract

There are many different ways of managing the lighting. The usage of appropriately selected controlling algorithms allows to increase the functionality, improve the comfort of using and introduces measurable benefits in the form of power consumption savings. In order to precisely apply the proper lighting control algorithms, it is important to know the distribution of light intensity in the room. This article is aimed at comparing different ways of lighting control and contains a control idea based on the KNX system, which is a popular building automation system. It is very useful for the implementation of lighting control criteria.
