Title: Application of the IES Method for Evaluating Light Source Color Rendition
Presenter: Kevin W. Houser, PhD, PE, FIES, LC, LEED AP, Professor, Dept. of Architectural Engineering, Penn State University
When: 2pm - Tuesday, October 4, 2016 & 11am - Wednesday, October 5, 2016
Where: Room 305
In 2015 the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) of North America published TM-30-15, which describes a new method for evaluating light source color rendition. This presentation will describe the process and results of that group’s work. The novel features of the new system will be presented, including a discussion of how it compares and relates to other ongoing efforts, best practices, remaining limitations, and the path forward as the lighting industry transitions from existing measures to more complete and accurate evaluations of light source color rendition. Examples for numerous light sources will be presented. The audience will become knowledgeable in interpreting the numerical and graphical results from TM-30-15.
After attending this seminar, participants will be able to:
1. Describe the components of TM-30-15’s color rendition evaluation system and how they can be interpreted to aid design and specification
2. Comprehend the conceptual framework for TM-30-15’s color rendition evaluation system
3. Recognize the limitations of this system, and more generally recognize the limitations of all measures for color rendition
Length of Seminar:
One hour, with approximately 45 minutes of presentation and 15 minutes for questions
