Analysis of the potencial of natural illumination for the savings and efficient use of the energy in buildings located in hot climates; Analisis del potencial de la iluminacion natural para ahorro y uso eficiente de la energia en las edificaciones en climas calidos

Abstract

Daylight is an essential factor in lightening buildings. Its use is not only oriented to supply illumination to the spaces to provide adequate lightening levels for the optimum execution of their occupants` tasks, but also to supply the appropriate illumination level required in each case for specific functions, as well as to contribute to the psychophysiological health of its users and provide a favorable ambient and the germicide action in the ultraviolet component of the sunlight and besides a portion of vitamin {sup D,} that is needed for people`s health. On the other hand, the rational and efficient use of daylight can contribute to the diminish the consumption of electric power, that is used for the artificial lightning of buildings. This situation is particularly important in hot climates, where the consumption of electricity for lightening interior spaces is huge, mainly in non-dwelling buildings. In this paper the possibilities of the utilization of daylight are explored and analyzed for the purpose of achieving energy savings and the visual thermal and lightning comfort in buildings.

[Espanol] La luz natural diurna es un factor indispensable en los edificios. Su uso no solamente esta orientado a proveer de iluminacion a los espacios para proporcionar niveles de iluminancia adecuados para la optima realizacion de las tareas visuales de los ocupantes, sino tambien para proporcionar la calidad luminica que se requiere para cada caso y funcion especificas, asi como contribuir a la salud psicofisiologica de los usuarios al brindarles un ambiente favorable y la accion germicida en la componente ultravioleta luminica y ademas, un contenido de vitamina {sup D,} necesario para la salud de las personas. Por otra parte, el uso sensato y eficiente de la luz natural diurna puede contribuir a reducir el consumo de energia electrica que se utiliza para el alumbrado artificial de los edificios. Esta situacion es de particular importancia en climas calidos, donde los consumos de energia electrica para alumbrado de espacios interiores son muy cuantiosas, sobre todo en edificios no habitacionales. En este trabajo se exploran y presentan las posibilidades de la luz natural diurna para lograr ahorro de energia y confort visual termolumnico en las edificaciones.}
