Abstract: Installation of solar shading device in warm-humid climates for preventing overheating tends to generate gloomy interior. Hence, adopting the anidolic principles on an exterior solar shading, namely anidolic solar shading (ASS), aimed to create bright, pleasant interior and to improve the thermal performance of the anidolic daylighting system (ADS). This study developed a simulation-based parametric method to examine the critical elements of the anidolic collector and to investigate the magnitude of the improvement impacts on the energy performances of the ASS relative to the performances of unshaded clerestory, clerestory with eave, and ADS. By adding cavities and self-shading, the ASS could achieve relatively high thermal and daylighting performance estimated by simulation study, which comparatively agree quite well with the short-term monitoring results. Keywords: anidolic system, daylighting performance, simulation, thermal performance, warm-humid climates.
