Moscow University Physics Bulletin 2016. 71. N 5. P. 498
The effect of incidence angle on the electrical parameters of vertical parallel silicon solar cell under frequency domain was theoretically analyzed. Based on the diffusion-recombination equation, the expression of excess minority carrier density in the base was established according to the modulation frequency and the illumination incidence angle. The excess minority carrier density, the photocurrent density, the photovoltage, series resistance, shunt resistance, electric power and the space charge region capacitance were calculated and plotted. The objective of this work was to show the effects of solar cell modulation frequency and the illumination incidence angle on these electrical parameters, electric power and space charge region capacitance. Plots of solar cell’s electric power with the junction recombination velocity gave the maximum solar cell’s electric power; Pm. Influence of various parameters of incidence angles on the solar cell’s electric power was also studied.
