thermal load of lighting

Postby Valeriab.23 » Fri Sep 07, 2018 4:00 pm

Hello everybody,
I have a problem with thermal load of lighting.
The value of power density (W/m2) to be inserted in the Lighting tab, under general lighting, is an electrical value.
The outputs of the simulation are:
• General lighting (internal gains) which is Heat gain due to general lighting
• Lighting (fuel) which is electricity consumer by general light

In my final result general lighting are same to lighting (the value is: power density W / m2 × surface m2).
Really, the thermal load is lower than the electrical load,

How can I make sure that it is correctly simulated?
