The design of an urban area lighting has to preserve compliance with existing standards and regulations but also satisfy non-formalized rules related to the functionality, reliability or energy efficiency. The next important step following the design process is ensuring the optimal performance of a lighting system. It may be accomplished by a suitable system control. Such a formulation of a problem implies the high computational complexity of the design tasks. For that reason it’s necessary to develop an approach allowing to overcome the complexity problem. This article presents main factors determining the street lighting design and on the other side the formal methods providing an effective support in a design process.
