AbstractDr. Mardaljevic's recent paper on his implementation of the concept of daylight coefficients into the RADIANCE simulation environment is a well-written and a logical extension of his previous work on the validation of RADIANCE daylight simulations under real sky conditions. The interested reader might further want to learn, that the computational efficiency of Tregenza's concept of daylight coefficients has been recognized by a number of researchers, and the calculation approach has been implemented into RADIANCE by at least two other groups; one version has been implemented into the building simulation program ESP-R by Janak and Macdonald at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland and another version has been developed by Reinhart and Herkel at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems in Freiburg, Germany. Both approaches also distinguish between direct and diffuse daylight coefficients although some differences exist in how direct sunlight is treated.
