Abstract: Energy and electricity consumption models are critical for effective decision making to improve the supply and demand system. On-site electricity generation using PV, energy efficiency strategies, and smart grid technologies have shaped the need for detailed electricity demand modeling. Lighting in the residential buildings is a significant part of total electricity consumption. High variability of the lighting load makes it a complex modeling problem as lighting usage depends on many variables. Occupant behavior, building structure, and environmental conditions have made it more challenging to model electrical lighting consumption patterns. This paper presents a strategy to model lighting load using occupancy and measurement data of total lighting demand in the residential buildings.
Keywords: Lighting Modeling, Occupant Behavior, Electricity Demand Modeling, Lighting Usage.
