Calculate Voc for Solar cell


#1

Dear Sir,

I have a NW solar cell and I wanna calculate the Jsc, Voc and eta in optical simulation to compare the results with electrical simulation to analysis my results. I got the Jsc form " Solar_generation" but I can’t estimate the Voc for my NW structure. Could you help me to get it?

Thanks in Advance

Generally speaking you need to perform electrical simulation to get paramerets like open circuit voltage and efficiency of a solar cell. These cannot be calculated from only optical simulation. You may be able to get some approximate values using analytic expressions but those will work only for very simple structures. You can find some analytic equations on this webpage (http://pveducation.org/pvcdrom/open-circuit-voltage) and on the subsequent pages.
