FUNDAMENTALS OF PRACTICAL LIGHTING DESIGN FOR COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS (Incl. Mining & Substation Applications) WORKSHOP
SAIEE HOUSE, 18a Gill street, Observatory, Johannesburg.
Lighting design is a complex science involving many factors, each environment having its own unique requirements. Optimising the lighting layout and selection of luminaries can reduce installation and maintenance costs, as well as power consumption resulting in significantly lower life cycle costs. Correct lighting design improves safety, reducing injuries and accidents which cause facility downtime. Good lighting also results in a pleasant work environment and increases productivity in offices, workshops, industrial process plants and mines. Various technologies are compared for economy and performance in different application environments.
This workshop contains examples of practical application of theory and calculations to design lighting layouts for various environments such as offices and control buildings with fluorescent lighting, flood lighting for car parks, sports fields and substation HV yards, workshops and shopping malls with high bay lighting. Delegates will perform calculations and consult equipment specifications to complete several exercises during the workshop.
Upon completion of this course, you will receive 2 CPD Credits under validation number SAIEE-2171-RV1
