LIGHTING PRACTICE: THE COMMISSIONING PROCESS APPLIED TO LIGHTING AND CONTROL SYSTEMS
|Publication Date:||6 January 2020|
This Lighting Practice (LP) document, developed by the Illuminating Engineering Society in association with the Lighting Controls Association, describes the technical requirements for commissioning lighting and control systems to achieve owner performance criteria in new construction. Retro-commissioning,
The procedures, methods, and documentation requirements in this LP describe the application of ASHRAE Guideline 0-2005 for lighting and control systems, including documentation, test procedures and checklists.1 As such, this LP should be considered a supplement to the Commissioning Process detailed in ASHRAE Guideline 0-2005. The Commissioning Process is summarized herein for review and essential understanding by lighting designers; for additional information, the reader is referred to ASHRAE Guideline 0-2005.
This LP includes requirements for lighting and control systems to fully support the documentation, verification, and acceptance activities during each phase of the Commissioning Process, including a Systems Manual and training for operations and maintenance personnel and occupants. It should be noted, however, that appropriate application of this LP will depend upon the owner's specific performance criteria and how the given project will be designed, built, and operated.
