Development of Large Scale Optical Fiber Daylighting Systems Based on Fresnel Lenses
We present new designs and optical simulations of cost-effective daylighting systems composed of Fresnel lenses and stepped thickness waveguides powered by renewable solar energy for indoor lighting. Two types of system based on Linear Fresnel lenses and Fresnel lenses were designed and simulated using LightTools™ software. Some considerations on the economic expansion of the system in terms of efficiency and cost are discussed. The results show that the presented optical fiber daylighting system is a strong candidate for low-price and highly efficient solution for solar energy application to building energy savings.
