As our dependence on and need for abundant energy grows, it becomes increasingly important for engineers and managers to develop and maintain energy efficient systems and build effective energy management programs. Energy Management in Illuminating Systems presents the latest concepts, innovative methods, and state-of-the art technologies in commercial or industrial lighting systems and energy management. An effective energy management program comprises three essential elements: organization, technology, and economics. However, the success of any management program clearly must begin with an energy effective illuminating system, which in turn depends upon using sound engineering analysis and design principles during the projects early stages. In this book, the author-with long and unique experience in the field-provides the details of proven methods for achieving these goals. He presents: How to organize and operate the illumination energy management program The elements of designing energy effective illuminating systems-systems that can also increase worker productivity and reduce operating costs The latest in efficient system components, including light sources, ballasts, and luminaires How to evaluate energy efficiency, including discussion of the impact of energy efficient equipment on power quality, harmonics, the qKq factor, and lighting energy standards Energy Management in Illuminating Systems shows how to design and manage energy effective lighting systems for industrial or commercial facilities. With this book, designers, engineers, and managers finally have a complete, how-to guide for applying practical energy management principles to various systems of energy. standards. In 1975, work was begun by IES on a series of six documents that deal with energy standards for ... the determination of lighting power limit; lighting control guidelines are contained in LEM-3, aquot;Design Considerations for Effective ...
