Classical analyses of various conventional solar cell models are examined. They are unified through the separation of their linear and nonlinear components and the application of Thevenin's theorem to the linear terms. An explicit multiexponential model with series and shunt resistances is proposed as an alternative to conventional implicit multiexponential models commonly used to describe significant parallel conduction mechanisms in real solar cells. The proposed model is better suited than… CONTINUE READING
