Ali m Baniyounes, Yazeed Ghadi, Mazen Alnabulsi


This aim of this article is to raise and show the results of using advance and intelligent building management system IBMS based in utilizing a fuzzy logic controller that allows the usage and the control of natural light (day light). The Fuzzy logic controller (FLC) was sat to control the buildings dimming system while utilizing natural light which normally allows to add outdoors illuminance into the inside ones. A such control system is important mean technique that can be used in smart commercial buildings in order to save energy and thus reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  This control system depends on quantifying the outdoor and the indoor illuminance and permitting an add-on controller in order to implement a photometric calculator that able to compare and then to a decision to dim rooms lighting fixtures.  The article also high-lights energy savings using this technique and then suggest proper markets for using this controlling system whether during the buildings’ design stage, existing commercial buildings.
