Illumination Level Effects on Macroscopic Parameters of a Bifacial Solar Cell
Abstract: This study presents a method based on the experimental measurement of the short-circuit current (Icc) and the open circuit voltage (Vco) of the solar cell. It permits the determination of recombination parameters such as: diffusion length (L), back surface recombination velocity (Sb), intrinsic junction recombination velocity (Sjo), and macroscopic parameters in particular, the shunt and series resistances of a bifacial solar cell for various illumination levels (n). Illumination level effects on macroscopic parameters are highlighted.
