Lighting is a significant area for the effective implementation of Demand Side Management (DSM) programme, especially in India. Effective energy management in lighting includes proper planning and implementation of appropriate lighting system for a given application. Even after the implementation of a good lighting scheme, there may be decrease in the lighting level with time due to several reasons, like, dust accumulation on the lamp and luminaire, dust accumulation on the reflecting area like wall, ceiling and floor, corrosion, burning out of the lamp before its life mentioned. But, the designed lighting system must be such that it offers sufficient light on the work area even after the decrease in lighting level. Therefore, during the design stage, one has to accomplish a factor which corresponds to the loss of light with time. This can accounted by the Light Loss factor. The application of Neuro-expert system can play a major role in the evaluation of Light Loss Factor. This paper presents the application of Artificial Neural Network (ANN) and Expert Systems for the evaluation of Maintenance Factor which requires the evaluation of Light Loss Factor, Luminaire Dirt Depreciation Factor (LDD), Room Surface Dirt Depreciation Factor (RSDD) and Lamp Burnout Factor (LBO).The results obtained will be more accurate than conventional method. Therefore the customer will be benefited by the reduction of both capital and running costs. This helps the electrical utility in proper energy management.
