DElight: A Daylighting and Electric Lighting Simulation Engine

An eight-page building simulation paper. DElight is a simulation engine for daylight and electric lighting system analysis in buildings. DElight calculates interior illuminance levels from daylight, and the subsequent contribution required from electric lighting to meet a desired interior illuminance. DElight has been specifically designed to integrate with a building thermal simulation on a time-step basis, for whole-building analysis. This paper describes the simulation methods used in DElight and some of the key details of software implementation.
