[TRNSYS-users] Artificial lighting

Dear all,


I don’t understand how the artificial lighting in the Trnsys 17 works.

As I can see, there is a controller with some input values, like « upper »
and « lower dead band ». But in the native examples of trnsys 17, these
inputs are not configured.

Moreover, there is nothing to say what is the level of intensity required to
switch off the artificial lighting inside the room.

(What is the minimum “lux” value inside the room ?)

And finally, for the value (-120) * 3.6 in ITLIGHTON, where is it taken into
account ? Why is it a negative value ?


Could you please help me to better understand and control these things ?


Best regards,


ir. Frédéric Oleksandrow
