could a example about self heating of solar cells be provided?
thankyou!

Hi. We do not have an example that models self heating in solar cell since in most cases I believe the majority of heating comes from optical absorption. We do have an example of a solar cell that includes heating due to optical (solar) absorption (Planar Silicon Solar Cell). We also have an example of a PIN modulator that includes modeling of self-heating (PIN Mach-Zehnder). I believe you will find these examples helpful. If you are trying to create a simulation setup for your own device and have some specific questions please feel free to ask them and I will be happy to answer.
