Abstract
The obstruction of solar radiation by solar controls must be balanced with the required daylight contribution. Solar controls are characterized by the percentage of non-obstructed external radiance. The estimation of this radiance, particularly its diffuse component, depends on the sky radiance distribution used. In this work, we have compared three models (isotropic, CIE clear sky and Perez) before deciding which one is the most suitable for calculating natural light without forgetting the aspe...
