Abstract

This paper investigated the impact of Window to Wall Ratios (WWR) an the thermal comfort and energy lighting demand of a building in tropical zone. Simulations were carried out for a reference office proposed by Task 27 of IEA using three Window to Wall Ratios (WWR). Results were analyzed both in terms of operative temperature and energy lighting consumption. Simulations results showed that for increasing WWR, the operative temperature increases and energy lighting demand decreases.
