Abstract: This article applies the Taguchi design on a simulation as well as on an experimentation technique to determine the thermal transmittance (U-value) of a double-glazed window with inter-panes blinds so as to explore its performance potential for a particular Indian climate. Environmental parameters are selected per the composite climate in India. Simulated results show a maximum of 20% variation when compared with experimental ones. Analysis of results shows that Taguchi methods are effective in ranking the effect of various parameters on the U-value of identified glazing units. The low-emissivity glazing system ranks first, followed by slat angle, temperature difference, pane spacing, and temperature of hotplate (representing climatic conditions). The analysis of means is also carried out to identify the best combination of levels of various parameters. 2015 ASHRAE.
