4 Lighting Fundamentals - Illumination Light Output.Measured at the lamp surface.Measured in lumens.Illuminance or Light Level.Measured at the working surface.Measured in foot-candles.Luminance or Brightness.Measured at an angle to the working surface.Measured in footlamberts.
5 Targeted Illumination Levels Targeted illumination level is determined by:Tasks being performed (detail, contrast, size).Ages of the occupants.Importance of speed and accuracy.
6 Recommended Illumination Levels ActivityIllumination Foot-candlesOffices: Average Reading and Writing50-75Offices: Hallways10-20Offices: Rooms with Computers20-50Auditoriums / Assembly Places15-30Hospitals: General Areas10-15Labs / Treatment areas50-100Libraries30-100Schools30-150
7 Quality of Illumination Quality of illumination may affect worker productivity.Quality is affected by:Glare. Too bright.Uniformity of illumination.Color rendition. Ability to see colors properly.Scale is 0 to 100 (100 is best)Color Temperature. Warm to Cool.Measured in degrees kelvin is warm (yellowish); 5000 is cool or “daylight”.
8 Color Rendering Index (CRI) A relative scale indicating how perceived colors illuminated by the light source match actual colors. The higher the number the less color distortion from the reference source.CRI = Excellent color renditionCRI = Very Good color renditionCRI = Good color renditionCRI = Fair color rendition0 – 55 CRI = Poor color rendition
9 Color Temperature (K˚) A measure of the “warmth” or “coolness” of a light source.≤ 3200K = “warm” or red side of spectrum≥ 4000K = “cool” or blue side of spectrum3500K = “neutral”5000K = “Daylight”
10 Color Temperature Scale North Sky KColor Temperature ScaleDaylight Fluo KCool White KHalogen – 3100KWarm White KIncandescent – 2700KHPS K10
11 Color Rendition cool source is used enhancing blues and greens warm light source is used, enhancing reds and orangesneutral light source is usedColor rendering, expressed as a rating on the Color Rendering Index (CRI), from 0-100, describes how a light source makes the color of an object appear to human eyes and how well subtle variations in color shades are revealed. The higher the CRI rating, the better its color rendering ability.
12 EfficiencyLighting efficiency is expressed as lumens output/wattage input.Ranges from 4 to 150 lumens/watt.Show overhead.
13 Lamp Lumen Depreciation As lamps age, they lose a certain amount of output.Old T12 fluoresecents can lose up to 30% of output over their life.New T8 fluorescents maintain up to 95% of original lumens.This depreciation must be accounted for when installing new lighting system.
15 Luminaires Luminaire = Lighting fixture LampsLamp socketsBallastsReflective materialLenses, refractors, louversHousingDirects the light using reflecting and shielding surfaces.
16 Luminaires (cont’d) Luminaire Efficiency Percentage of lamp lumens produced that actually exits the fixture.Types of luminairesDirect (general illumination).Indirect (light reflected off the ceiling/walls; “wall washers”).Spot/Accent lighting.Task Lighting.Outdoor/Flood Lights.
17 Types of Lighting Incandescents/Halogens. Fluorescents. High Intensity Discharge (HID).Inductive.Light Emitting Diode.
18 Incandescent Lamps One of the oldest electric lighting technologies. Light is produced by passing a current through a tungsten filament.Least efficient – (4 to 24 lumens/watt).Lamp life ~ 1,000 hours.
19 Incandescent Lamps (cont’d) High CRI (100) – Warm Color (2700K)Halogen 2900K to 3200K)InexpensiveExcellent beam controlEasily dimmed – no ballast neededImmediate off and onNo temperature concerns – can be used outdoors100, 75, 60 and 40 watt lamps will be going away per 2007 law beginning 2012
20 Tugnsten-Halogen Lamps A type of incandescent lamp.Encloses the tungsten filament in a quartz capsule filled with halogen gas.Halogen gas combines with the vaporized tungsten and redeposits it on the filament.More efficient.Lasts longer (up to 6,000 hrs.)
21 Fluorescent Lamps Most common commercial lighting technology. High Efficicacy: up to 100 lumens/watt.Improvements made in the last 15 years.T12: 1.5 inch in diameter.T8: 1 inch in diameter.~30% more efficient than T12.T5: 5/8 inch in diameter.~40% more efficient than T12.
22 Fluorescent Lamps (cont’d) ConfigurationsLinear (8 ft., 4 ft., 2 ft., 1 ft.)Ubend (fit in a 2 ft. x 2 ft. fixture).Circular (rare, obsolete).Fixtures can be 4, 3, 2, or 1 lamp per fixture.Output CategoriesStandard Output (430 mA).High Output (800 mA).Very High Output (1,500 mA).
23 Schematic of Fluorescent Lamp Phosphor crystals Mercury atom Electron Electrode
24 Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) Fluorescent lamp that is small in size (~2 in. diameter, 3 to 5 in. in length).Developed as replacement for incandescent lamps.Two Main TypesBallast-integrated.Ballast non-integrated (allows only lamp to be replaced).
25 Compact FluorescentExcellent color available – comparable to incandescentMany choices (sizes, shapes, wattages, output, etc.)Wide Range of CRI and Color TemperaturesEnergy Efficient (3.5 to 4 times incandescent)Long Life (generally 10,000 hours –lasts 12 times longer than standard 750 hour incandescent lamps)Less expensive dimming now available (0-10v dimming to 5%)Available for outdoor use with amalgam technology
26 Compact Fluorescent Lamps (cont’d) Use ¼ the power of an incandescent for an equivalent amount of light. (an 18-watt CFL is equivalent to a 75-watt incandescent.)10,000 hour life. (10x an incandescent).Saves about $30 over the life of the CFL.
27 Ballasts Auxiliary component that performs 3 functions: Provides higher starting voltage.Provides operating voltage.Limits operating current.Old type ballasts were electromagnetic.New ballasts are electronic.Lighter, less noisy, no lamp flicker, dimming capability).
28 Ballast FactorDEFINITION: The fraction of rated lamp lumens produced by a specific lamp-ballast combinationAPPLICATIONS: High Ballast Factor Increases output( ) AND energy consumptionTypical Ballast Factor Comparable light output in( ) one-to-one replacementLow Ballast Factor Decreases light output( ) AND energy consumptionFor optimal efficiency lamps and ballasts must be properly matched.Maximize energy savings by selecting electronic ballasts with ballast factor that provides target illuminance.
29 Ballast Circuit TypesInstant Start Ballast – starts lamp instantly with higher starting voltage. Efficient but may shorten lamp life.Rapid Start – delay of about 0.5 seconds to start; supplies starting current to heat the filament prior to starting and continues during operation. Uses 2 to 4 watts more than an instant start ballast.Programmed Rapid Start - delay of about 0.5 seconds to start; starting current heats the filament prior to starting, then cuts off during operation.
32 High Intensity Discharge (HID) Lamps produces light by means of an electric arc between tungsten electrodes housed inside a translucent or transparent fused quartz or fused alumina (ceramic) arc tube filled with special gases.
33 High Intensity Discharge Lamps (cont’d) Arc tube can be filled by various types of gases and metal salts.HID lamps are used in industrial high bay applications, gymnasiums, outdoor lighting, parking decks, street lights.Efficient (up to 150 lumens/watt).Long Life (up to 25,000 hours).Drawback – take up to 15 minutes to come up to full light after power outage.
34 High Intensity Discharge Lamps (cont’d) Types of HIDsMercury Vapor (obsolete)Sodium VaporHigh pressureLow pressureMetal HalideArc tube contains argon, mercury, and metal halides.Gives better color temperature and CRI.
35 Metal Halide Lamps Most common HID in use today. Recent Improvements. Allow higher pressure & temperature.Better efficiency, better CRI and better lumen maintenance.Pulse Start vs. older Probe StartCeramic vs. older Quartz arc tube.
36 Light Emitting Diodes (LED) Latest Lighting Technology.Invented in 1962.In the past, used as indicator lights, automotive lights, and traffic lights; now being introduced for indoor and outdoor lighting.LED is a semiconductor technology.Electroluminescence. Electrons recombine with holes in the semiconductor, releasing photons.
37 Light Emitting Diodes (cont’d) Lower energy consumption.Longer lifetime (50,000 to 100,000 hrs).Smaller size.Faster switching.Greater durability and reliability.Cycling.Dimming.

43 Induction LightsLight source in which the power required to generate light is transferred from the outside of the lamp envelope by means of electromagnetic fields.Type of fluorescent lamp – uses radio waves rather than arc to excite phosphor coating on lamp to glowLong lifespan due to the lack of electrodes - between 65,000 and 100,000 hours depending on the lamp model;High energy conversion efficiency of between 62 and 90 Lumens/Watt [higher wattage lamps are more energy efficient];High power factor due to the low loss of the high frequency electronic ballasts which are typically between 95% and 98% efficient;Minimal Lumen depreciation (declining light output with age) compared to other lamp types as filament evaporation and depletion is absent;“Instant-on” and hot re-strike, unlike most conventional lamps used in commercial/industrial lighting applications (such as Mercury-Vapor lamp, Sodium Vapor Lamp and Metal Halide Lamp);Environmentally friendly as induction lamps use less energy, and use less mercury per hour of operation than conventional lighting due to their long lifespan.
44 Induction LightingType of fluorescent lamp – uses radio waves rather than arc to excite phosphor coating on lamp to glowAdvantages:QL and Icetron: 60,000 to 100,000 hours – if used 12 hours each day will last 20 years!Good for hard to maintain locationsDisadvantages:Large light source – difficult to control beam of light making it inefficient for delivered and task lumensExpensive - $200+ adder to HIDNo industry standards for Induction

46 Exit SignsOld incandescent exit signs used (2) 20-watt incandescent lamps.At $0.08/kWh, energy cost for 1 sign = $28/yr.CFL exit signs use 10 to 12 wattsEnergy cost for 1 sign = $7 to $8.50/yr.LED exit signs use 3 to 4 wattsenergy cost for 1 sign = $3 to $4/yr.Photoluminescent sign uses 0 watts, but may have (slightly) radioactive material.New technology claims completely non-toxic and recyclable.
47 Outdoor Lighting Older technology for outdoor lighting High pressure sodiumMetal HalideNewer technologyCompact fluorescentsLEDsSolar street lights (economical when electric lines don’t need to be run in a new installation).
49 Hazardous Waste Disposal Hazardous Waste Lamps will now be regulated under the Federal Universal Waste Rule which was first developed to regulate the disposal of other widely generated wastes that contain toxic materials, such as batteries and pesticidesState Rule supersedes Federal RuleUnder current federal law, mercury-containing lamps (fluorescent, HID) may be hazardous wasteThe rule applies only to lamps that fail the TCLP (Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure) test which is used to determine if a waste is hazardous.

51 LIGHTING ECONOMICS $$ Simple Payback Return on Investment (ROI) Internal Rate of Return (IRR)Net Present Value (NPV)
52 LIGHTING ECONOMICS $$ Simple Payback Return on Investment (ROI) Internal Rate of Return (IRR)Net Present Value (NPV)
54 SIMPLE PAYBACK = TOTAL PROJECT COST / ANNUAL SAVINGS Simple Payback is the number of years it takes an energy saving measure to repay the initial investment for the new system. It does not account for the time value of money and it also does not consider the savings that occur after the payback point.Most private companies require a simple payback of 2 years or less.For energy saving measures, they will sometimes accept a 3 to 5 year payback.Government agencies can accept longer paybacks than private companies.SIMPLE PAYBACK = TOTAL PROJECT COST / ANNUAL SAVINGS
55 Return on Investment - ROI ROI is the inverse of Simple Payback and has all of the qualifiers of a simple payback. It does not account for the time value of money and also it does not consider the savings that occur after the payback point. It is sometimes called Rate of Return.ROI is expressed as a percentage. It is often compared to other investment yields.
56 Internal Rate of Return (IRR %) IRR is a hurdle rate. The IRR is the discount rate of return at which a project’s NPV=0. IRR accounts for life-cycle cash flows and time-value of money, but the percentages alone should not be compared for ranking (choosing one alternative over another) still use the NPV results as well.IRR is the discount rate that delivers a net present value of zero for a series of future cash flows. IRR is expressed as an interest yield. Any interest yield equal to or less than the IRR for a project is a “yes” decision (i.e. the IRR is greater than the cost of capital).
57 Net Present Value ($)NPV adjusts for the time value of money by discounting incremental future cash flows to the present time using a discount rate appropriate to those cash flows. NPV ($) is a profitability measure and can be used to rank one lighting alternative over another. The higher the $ profit NPV, the better the alternative. The NPV, to be appropriately used, should be calculated by applying the after tax cost of capital to the after tax cash flows.
58 Example: Simple Payback & ROI A lighting upgrade is estimated to save $5,000 a year and cost $25,000. What are the simple payback and return on investment (ROI)?Simple payback = Cost / Annual Savings= $25,000 / $5,000= 5 yearsROI = 1 / Simple Payback= 1/5= 20%
59 Example: Energy & Cost Savings Existing lighting in the Method Road Greenhouse consists of 10 fixtures containing ten 4’, 4 lamp T12 fixtures that consume 154 watts of electrical power. At $0.09/kWh, what is the annual cost of operating these fixtures 2,000 hours a year?10 x 154 watts x 2,000 hours/1,000 = 3,080 kWh3,080 x $0.09 = $2,772 per yearThese fixtures are replaced by fixtures containing 25 watt T8 lamps with low BF ballasts which only consume 89 watts per fixture. What is the annual cost of operation?10 x 89 watts x 2,000 hours/1,000 = 1,780 kWh1,780 x $0.09 = $1,602 per yearCost savings = $1,170 per year

83 T5 and T5HO SystemsOne T5HO lamp provides similar maintained lumen output to two T8 lamps(4750 vs maintained lumens)Maintained lumens are higher – fixtures are smallerPeak light output at 95˚F ambient air temperature instead of 77˚F withT8 and T12Amalgam technology has been added to provide a more constant lumen output across a broad range of ambient temperatures!
84 T5 and T5HO Systems Disadvantages T5 and T5HO lamp life is less than T8sThe bulb wall surface of the T5 is very bright. Care must be exercised in using T5 lamp in direct lighting applications.Costs higher than T8 – cost can be balanced by a reduction in the number of luminaries used.Lead times may be longer – T5s require compete fixture replacement.In cooler temperatures or high CFM air distribution the T5 or T5HO may not perform well (peak light output at 95 °F).May not work well with occupancy sensors due to slow lumen run-up with cold start.
85 T5HO vs. T8 Application Rules of Thumb ≤ 20’ – use T8≥ 20’ – use T5HO18’ to 25’ – either T8 or T5HO can be used successfullyOver 50 types of 4’ T8 lamps availableTwo T5 lamps: 28w T5 and 54w T5HOTo get T5HO performance out of T8 lamps, use high-lumen/high performanceT8 lampsTypical T8 electronic ballast factors range from 0.72 to 1.2.
86 T5HO vs. T8 for Warehouse Aisles Rule of Thumb In general for warehouse aisles, T5HO will perform better in non-air-conditioned spaces and T8 performs better in air-conditioned spaces.Reason: Ambient temperature of T5HO rating for peak performance is 35 degrees C (95F) and T8 is rated at 25C (77F).Source: Warehouse aisle lighting – p. 16 – LD&A Feb 2009-article by Siva K.
