Diffuse skylight in DesignBuilder

Can I consider a polycarbonate skylight Diffuser System in daylight calculations in DesignBuilder? I don't know if the software is capable of dispersing the light like the device.

Yes, that is possible. You will have to set up correctly (that is the tricky part) the diffusing properties. See at the bottom of DesignBuilder online reference.
