Abstract
In a modern society there is a constant increase in electrical use but at the
same time the environmental awareness among consumers is rising. This master theses aims at investigating the possibilities in cost and energy efficient
lighting control techniques.
This master thesis is written for the Measurement Technology and Industrial
Electrical Engineering division, IEA, within the Faculty of Engineering
of Lund University in cooperation with AB Regin in Landskrona.
Lighting control systems are studied from an energy saving perspective and
the relation to reduction of carbon dioxide emission is addressed. Designing
tools, such as LENI and ELI, are introduced and their relation to international standards in electrical and lighting... (More)
In a modern society there is a constant increase in electrical use but at the
same time the environmental awareness among consumers is rising. This master theses aims at investigating the possibilities in cost and energy efficient
lighting control techniques.
This master thesis is written for the Measurement Technology and Industrial
Electrical Engineering division, IEA, within the Faculty of Engineering
of Lund University in cooperation with AB Regin in Landskrona.
Lighting control systems are studied from an energy saving perspective and
the relation to reduction of carbon dioxide emission is addressed. Designing
tools, such as LENI and ELI, are introduced and their relation to international standards in electrical and lighting design. To illustrate the cost efficiency of lighting control systems, a case study is conducted at Schenker logistics in Växjö, revealing the payback time of the lighting control installation.
A market study is carried out, where available lighting control systems are
investigated. Different protocols are compared based on parameters such as
data rate, power consumption and cost. The aim of this study is to select
one existing system to be implemented on one of AB Regin’s platforms. For
this purpose a selection criteria is composed.
Digital Addressable Lighting System, DALI, is chosen for implementation
along with the EXOcompact controller from AB Regin. The implementation
deals with building an interface between the EXOline, used by AB Regin,
and the DALI line, defined by the DALI protocol. A DALI Master Unit is
built around an Atmel ATmega186 microprocessor and some testing of sending
messages from the EXO system to a DALI enabled lamp is performed.
Based on the case study conducted and other sources, the cost and energy efficiency of lighting controle systems are proven. The concept of controlling lights from AB Regin’s EXOSystem is also proven with implementation and testing. (Less)
