SUNY Ulster Community College
NEW! LED Lighting Course
Thusday, Feb 23 5 - 9 pm
This tutorial is addressed to architects, interior designers, engineers, contractors and building managers, and to the general public. It provides the basic knowledge required to choose LED fixtures that are efficient, sustainable, and that deliver a high quality of light required for common lighting applications. Upon introducing the operation principles and manufacturing of Light Emitting Diodes (LED), participants will learn how LEDs are assembled with optics and integrated with drivers to create complete light sources that provide energy efficient replacement of incandescent lamps, compact fluorescent lamps, fluorescent tubes and other specific lighting fixtures.
Participants will learn the relevance of LED color temperature, color rendering, thermal management, reliability and life-cycle performance assessment in evaluating and selecting LED light sources and fixtures. Special attention will be given to manufacturer's claims about performances and sustainability as LED performances can vary widely from product to product and from manufacturer to manufacturer.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
• Compare LED lighting fixtures with regard to color consistency and efficacy.
• Evaluate the quality and assess the reliability of LED lighting fixtures.
• Specify LED lighting fixtures to the relevant standards as defined by the IES and ANSI.
• Analyze the economic feasibility of LED lighting fixtures versus conventional lighting.
Your instructors are Jean-Claude Fouere, Renewable Energy/Energy Efficiency Instructor and Michael Stiller, LEED AP of Michael Stiller Design.
Class size will be limited to 10 students.
