The IES San Francisco and the Pacific Energy Center will present an IES TM-30-15 Education Class. TM-30-15 provides new metrics for evaluating the color rendition of light sources. This course will include live color demonstrations, as well as, Case Studies using the new metrics.

It is accredited for 2.5 contact hours of IES/CEU's for NCQLP Certification and AIA/LU's.

IES TM-30-15 Educators are:

Michael Royer, Lighting Engineer at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, (PNNL), works on the U.S. Department of Energy’s Solid-State Lighting Program. Michael chairs the IES Color Metrics Task Group, is a member of the IES Color Committee, is a guest editor for LEUKOS’ Special Edition on Color Rendition, and received the 2013 Taylor Technical Talent Award from the IES for his published body of work.

Aurelien David, Chief Scientist at Soraa, has researched LED lighting for thirteen years, is the author of 35 international journal publications, and holds 20 patents in this field. He was a lead technical contributor to IES TM-30-15 and studied at UC Santa Barbara under Nobel Laureate Shuji Nakamura, inventor of the blue LED.

This course will include four sections, with ample time for questions at each stage.

  1. Color science fundamentals – This introduction will cover the basics of color spaces, chromaticity, chromatic adaptation, and color rendering. It will build the foundation for discussion on TM-30
  2. Introduction to TM-30 – This section will include a discussion of each measure in the TM-30 method, as well as detailed analysis showing why it is an improvement over existing measures, such as CRI.
  3. Research Results and Demonstration – Color tunable luminaires will be used to demonstrate the wide range of color rendering that is possible, even without changing chromaticity. Weaknesses of past measures will be identified, as well as the limitations of considering only TM-30’s average values. Research results from an experiment conducted using the same luminaire will also be presented.
  4. Case Studies – This section will present several example scenarios where TM-30 might be used by a manufacturer or specifier. It is intended to give the audience experience working through the tradeoffs associated with the different levels of information available in TM-30.
