Abstract

This paper presents a simplified vector-based method for predicting irradiance in urban context by taking a different approach for sky discretisation, obstruction detection and reflection models. A case study with three urban areas with varying densities is performed to validate the proposed model against the advanced simulation software, RADIANCE.
