Title: Experimental study of thermal performance of automated venetian blind window systems

Abstract

This article presents an operational and thermal performance study on automated venetian blind window systems. They are systems with pivoted louvers installed horizontally, sealed hermetically between two glass panes and controlled automatically following the thermal needs. The experimental studies were carried out in two identical test cells (2.43 m high, 1.48 m wide, and 1.92 m deep) used as variable temperature calorimeters. One was equipped with an automated window system and the other double glass window without louvers. Various parameters were measured and recorded: louver angle, inside and outside air temperatures, cloud cover. The operational and thermal performances of the automated louver system have been demonstrated and compared with that of the ordinary system.
