Potential advantages offered by multichannel luminaires with regards to spectral tuning are frequently overshadowed by its design challenges, a major one being the non-uniformity in illuminance and color distribution. In this paper, we present a formulation using genetic algorithm (GA) to optimize the Light Emitting Diode (LED) placement, yielding 40% superior uniformity in illuminance and color distributions compared to existing analytical formulations, substantially reducing the reliance on optical design for this purpose. It is specifically shown that our approach is employable for circadian tuning applications, even when heavily constrained by industry specifications on panel size and minimum LED separation.
