The research focuses on investigation of multi factors which influenced on the Performance of flat plate solar collector and selects the optimum conditions. The model of solar collector is treated with number of glass covers, Cover- Plate air spacing and flow rate of water. The stagnet temperature of absorber plate was calculated. The calculations were carried out by using EES program in connection with Taguchi method and regression model. The outcome of fractional factorial design of experiments by Taguchi method was accomplished by Minitab 17 software
