Simplified Device Simulation of Silicon Solar Cells Using a Lumped Parameter Optical Model

Abstract

An optical model for solar cell device simulations providing a computational rapid alternative or extension to ray tracing is presented. Its lumped input parameters are mainly the wavelength-dependent external front surface transmission Text and pathlength enhancement Z, which can be derived by measurements and/or ray tracing of finished devices. A way to… (More)
