Abstract—This work proposes a development of the results and a further analysis about the Partial Daylight Autonomy (DAp) dynamic metric for daylighting, based on the Daylight Autonomy (DA), that allows a more accurate natural lighting study for any seasonal use space. In that way, an optimization of window gaps in facade and more efficient lighting levels related to the real necessities of the space could be reached. Thus, all the concepts and previous studies about this metric are supported by a mathematical basis and also applied to a non-university classroom.

 
Index Terms—dynamic metric, partial daylight autonomy, seasonal use buildings, energy efficiency, daylighting, architecture and health
