    Topic: Advanced Lighting Control Systems

    Summary:

    At this special Lunch ‘n’ Learn session we will review common lighting controls based on functionality and component types including the industry shift from hard wired analog to “plug-and-play” digital systems, and more recently, the transition from wired to wireless. We will also review how to write control specs and narratives, note drawings for lighting controls, and plan for successful commissioning post installation. This Lunch 'n' Learn is a partnered meeting between AEE Nevada Chapter and IES Nevada Chapter.

    Biography:

    Our guest speaker, Rick Miller, has over 40 years of experience designing electrical and lighting systems for commercial projects including hotels, hospitals, airports, offices, and industrial facilities for design firms in Chicago and San Francisco. He started his own engineering firm RNM Engineering Inc in 2002 and is currently providing commissioning services of electrical power systems and lighting control systems.

    Mr. Miller was principal co-author of the California Advanced Lighting Control Training Program (CALCTP). He has been lecturing on lighting controls for over 15 years, and has given seminars on the Title 24 energy code as it relates to lighting controls and its paperwork process.

    Rick earned a BS degree in engineering physics from the University of Michigan, and a master’s degree in architecture from the University of Colorado. He is a licensed engineer in California and several other states.
