Abstract—LED Luminaire integrating lighting control strategies has a significant role to pay in transforming the way energy used in commercial spaces. Though lighting control is a proven concept, the complexity and high capital investment prevent the deployment of such schemes. This simulation assisted study investigates the energy and cost implications of a large office located in India specifically at 9.9252°N, 78.1198°E. The energy savings and payback time of T5&CFL and LED luminaire with control schemes is presented, study shows the best results with scheduled occupancy with a photo sensor for window zones. For this to launch, a grouping of luminaires is carried out after accurate simulation of the building. The 3D plan prepared in AutoCAD is simulated using DIALux Evo 7, which gives the design, analysis and visualization of interior lighting. A MATLAB interface module helps to analyze the daylight dependency, perceived adequacy of illumination, energy comparison and payback period.
