About this Course
The IES offers Educational Webinars throughout the year, purposefully spanning a broad range of topics and speaker expertise. Metrics in Motion: Connected Lighting was a live webinar, now available as an archived webinar and CEU course.
Description: The combination of high-efficiency LED technology with seamless control and new features enabled by network connectivity presents a compelling vision for the future of lighting. Much work remains to translate that vision into successful installations, value-added functionality, and proven benefits, including energy efficiency. PNNL researchers are engaged in multiple studies designed to understand and quantify the performance of emerging connected lighting systems. In particular, the ability to measure energy performance at the device and system level is an important focus. This webinar will address some of the questions being pursued in this area, such as how to evaluate the accuracy of energy and electrical data that can be reported by connected lighting systems, and how and where to measure energy use in systems that are capable of essentially continuous change, tuning, and adaptation.
By the end of this course learners will be able to...
1. Describe Connected Lighting and the system components (network devices, light sources, sensors, etc.) within it.
2. Identify the benefits of energy monitoring and electrical data within a space, and how to interpret that data.
3. Explore lighting design criteria and the potential impact of Connected Lighting.
4. Consider traditional lighting energy metrics, and the influence Connected Lighting can have on the future of these metrics.
Michael Poplawski joined PNNL in 2009 as a Senior Engineer following twelve years in the commercial semiconductor industry. His work experience includes stints with Motorola, ON Semiconductor, and a CMOS image sensor start-up, and in various functions including device engineering and reliability, circuit design, application support, and technical marketing. His current efforts focus on supporting the DOE Solid-State Lighting program, primarily in the areas of Connected Lighting System technology evaluation and demonstration, standards and specification development, and the estimation of lighting energy end-use consumption. Michael is a member of IES, IEEE, and ASHRAE; serves on multiple standards development committees; and consults with numerous energy efficiency organizations, specification bodies, and early adopters.
