Abstract: In this research paper, Taguchi method, an influential technique for the optimization of operational parameters, is used to analyse the dehumidification parameters for a flat plate liquid desiccant dehumidification system. An orthogonal array using analysis of variance (ANOVA) and signal to noise ratio (S/N) are applied to find the dehumidification parameters of a liquid desiccant dehumidification system (LDDS). Calcium chloride (CaCl2) is used as a liquid desiccant solution. In this study, desiccant flow rate, air velocity and desiccant solution concentration are kept as operating parameters to find out the optimal relative humidity for room comfort. Experimental findings have shown proficient agreement with this approach.
Keywords: Optimization, Taguchi method, liquid desiccant, dehumidification, concentration.
