Ambient Bounce parameter recommendations/studies


Can anyone recommend any literature/study regarding setting up optimum
ambient bounce (AB) parameters for spaces based on the accuracy of the
results compared to the degree of its complexity/ floor plate sizes/
time taken to finish a rendering etc?

We are doing a study comparing a single space with the following
daylighting strategies using both Radiance and Daysim:

a) Simple fenestration with only low e glazing (single/double/ triple
insulated glazing etc)

b) Fenestration with blinds (manual/automated)

c) Light shelves

d) Combination of all of the above.

Any help/recommendations in this regard shall be highly appreciated.
