Abstract:

The report gives lighting criteria and lighting-system design methods for illuminating small-shelter interiors effectively. It summarizes the amounts of light quantity currently recommended for representative visual tasks, as well as the practices for controlling light quality. Then, to show how these lighting-design methods are actually applied, it describes a lighting system designed for the proposed control cab of a mobile low-power nuclear power plant. This lighting system was evaluated by making a lighting survey in a control-cab mock-up. The results showed the system satisfied the lighting criteria established for the shelter.
