PC2D: A Circular-Reference Spreadsheet Solar Cell Device Simulator


This paper introduces PC2D, which is a new silicon solar cell device simulator that models 2-D effects entirely within a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. The semiconductor drift-diffusion equations for electrons and holes are implemented using an iterative solution of cell formulas containing circular references. The familiar spreadsheet user interface and open… (More)
