A calculation procedure is described that combines the speed, low cost, and ease of the simplified methods with the flexibility and accuracy of the large computer models to predict interior daylight illumination. The Quicklite 1 program utilities the CIE sky luminance distribution functions for overcast and clear skies to predict daylight illumination at any point within a room. The light reaching the interior point being considered is separated into two components, Sky Component and Reflected Component, and the total is given as daylight factor.
