ABSTRACT

This work, based on the junction recombination velocity (Sfu) concept, is used to study the solar cell’s electric power at any real operating point. Using Sfu and the back side recombination velocity (Sbu) in a 3D modelling study, the continuity equation is resolved. We determined the photocurrent density, the photovoltage and the solar cell’s electric power which is a calibrated function of the junction recombination velocity (Sfu). Plots of solar cell’s electric power with the junction recombination velocity give the maximum solar cell’s electric power, Pm. Influence of various parameters such as grain size (g), grain boundaries recombination velocity (Sgb), wavelength (λ) and for different illumination modes on the solar cell’s electric power is studied.
