Lichtsimulation?
= lighting simulation? or
light simulation?
Leinigen
light simulation / lighting simulation
Explanation:
This may not be much of an answer. My instinct would be to use "light simulation"; the term "lighting" to me implies Beleuchtung/Ausleuchtung, i.e. not only the choice of light fixtures, but also their placement to achieve the desired lighting effect - in a word, lighting design.

However, a search on "light simulation" yielded some 670 or so hits, while "lighting simulation" comes up with about 1,700, and it seems that light simulation and lighting simulation are often used interchangeably.
