Equivalent Circuit Model of Semiconducting Single Walled Carbon Nano Tube based Bulk Hetero Junction Organic Solar Cell in Comparison with Experimental Results

Abstract

In this paper, the characteristics of organic bulk heterojunction solar cells have been designed and modeled using MATLAB R2010a version. Here, organic solar cell is considered as a diode and an equivalent circuit is developed with series and shunt resistances to obtain the I-V characteristics of the model. Non-linear equations are obtained in by solving the equivalent circuit model. These non-linear equations are solved using Newton-Raphson method. The theoretical results thus obtained are compared with practical results and an observation made is that are theoretical results are close to the results obtained from fabricated structure.
