Discomfort glare index

Its equation uses similar variables used in competing discomfort glare metrics. The basic equation is as follows, where L and w refer to the glare source, and prefers to the position index calculated from the position of the glare source in the observer’s field of view. In the case of discomfort glare, the kind of glare provoking an irritating or distracting effect, no current indices can properly explain the high variability existing between individuals Glare is a visual sensation caused by excessive brightness. It is subjective and person dependent. So, it is very difficult to measure glare factor accurately. Glare can be disabling or uncomfortable. Disability glare is the reduction in vision caused by bright light sources and it can be increased with the age of a person. Discomfort glare is a sensation of irritation due to bright light sources.

The UGR glare index for discomfort glare is ranked on a scale, which in practice runs from 13 to 28 where the higher the glare index the higher the level of glare. The smallest change in the glare index denoting a significant difference is 3. Its equation uses similar variables used in competing discomfort glare metrics. The basic equation is as follows, where L and w refer to the glare source, and prefers to the position index calculated from the position of the glare source in the observer’s field of view. The CIBSE glare index is a system for the evaluation of discomfort glare defining two methods of calculation: The calculation of the glare index based on a formula. The finding of the index from tables based on the photometric data as supplied by the luminaire manufacturer. Discomfort glare indices: a comparative study. The variations in the discomfort indices with the azimuth angle at the line of vision of the hypothetical observer have been studied. The equivalent veiling luminance to evaluate the disability glare calculated from measurements in the space viewed by the observer. Glare is a visual sensation caused by excessive brightness. It is subjective and person dependent. So, it is very difficult to measure glare factor accurately. Glare can be disabling or uncomfortable. Disability glare is the reduction in vision caused by bright light sources and it can be increased with the age of a person. Discomfort glare is a sensation of irritation due to bright light sources. Ratings of initial light output provided by manufacturers express the total light output after 100 hours of operation. disability glare - A type of glare that causes a loss of visibility from stray light being scattered within the eye. discomfort glare - The sensation of annoyance or even pain induced by overly bright sources. illuminance - The amount of light (luminous flux) incident on a surface area. Illuminance is measured in footcandles (lumens/square foot) or lux (lumens/square meter).

Illuminance is measured in footcandles (lumens/square foot) or lux (lumens/square meter). Annual average daylighting illuminance, discomfort glare index, and thermal comfort PPD are also reported. More detailed graphs are also displayed for monthly heating, cooling, fan, and lighting energy consumption, peak energy, and thermal comfort; and hourly daylight illuminance and glare index. Discomfort glare results in an instinctive desire to look away from a bright light source or difficulty in seeing a task. Disability glare impairs the vision of objects without necessarily causing discomfort. This could arise for instance when driving westward at sunset.

The degree of discomfort glare for indoor installations can be estimated by calculating the glare index according to the UGR method. Following the introduction 

We found the most useful index of disability glare to be the difference in visual acuity scores for the low contrast chart in the no-glare and high-glare conditions  Unified Glare Rating or UGR method is an international index used to For the measurements of glare the quantity called the discomfort glare constant is used. Iwata together with a different team did also propose a modification for the position index for use in certain daylight glare indices but it presented some difficulties.

The glare index is affected by the size and relative position of fenestration, orientation to the sun, sky luminance, and interior luminance. The glare index is similar to the index of sensation and the discomfort glare rating, which are used for electric-lighting applications.

2.3.1 Discomfort Glare in Outdoor Sports and Area Lighting (CIE 112-1994) . the CIE Glare Index (CGI) and the British Glare Index (BGI) to evaluate glare  11 Oct 2011 Only a few formulae have been proposed for discomfort glare of daylight A Comparison of the Existing Glare Index and the Proposed Method,  In the case of discomfort glare, the kind of glare provoking an irritating or distracting effect, no current indices can properly explain the high variability existing  glare indices cannot reliably evaluate the level of discomfort glare from daylight in flight deck with complex non-uniform glare sources and irregular shape glare 

Unified Glare Rating or UGR method is an international index used to For the measurements of glare the quantity called the discomfort glare constant is used. Iwata together with a different team did also propose a modification for the position index for use in certain daylight glare indices but it presented some difficulties.

In some formulae, the position index is expressed   quantify the glare of a light emitting source [9]. This discomfort glare index is more suitable for the classification of glare caused by solar installations. This index  includes a comparison of currently existing equations for the discomfort glare changing of the observers viewing direction and thus the position index of the
