Optical modeling and simulation of thin-film photovoltaic by Janez Krc

By Janez Krc

In wafer-based and thin-film photovoltaic (PV) units, the administration of sunshine is a vital point of optimization due to the fact trapping solar in lively elements of PV units is vital for effective strength conversions. Optical modeling and simulation permit effective research and optimization of the optical state of affairs in optoelectronic and PV devices.
Optical Modeling and Simulation of Thin-Film Photovoltaic Devices presents readers with a radical advisor to acting optical modeling and simulations of thin-film sun cells and PV modules. It deals perception on examples of present optical types, demonstrates the applicability of optical modeling, and provides concrete instructions and ideas for bettering the devices.
Along with giving functional tricks, the e-book highlights major examine, improvement, and creation within the box. It covers quite a few techniques of one-, two-, and three-d optical modeling, together with one-dimensional semi-coherent modeling and two-dimensional modeling in response to the finite aspect technique (FEM). Many functional examples illustrate using simulations with the built types, aiding readers higher comprehend and increase their very own types in addition to enjoy cutting edge ideas in mild administration in thin-film PV units.

Also in a solar cell structure we have to consider (a) propagation of light and (b) the situation at interfaces. However, the situation is not so trivial since light is propagating in forward and backward directions as a result of multiple reflections and transmissions at the interfaces. Further on, * We relate the terms reflection and transmission to general phenomena that occur when we shine the light at an interface, whereas we assign the terms reflectance and transmittance (coefficient) to specific quantities determining how much light is reflected and transmitted (on the level of electric field or light intensity).
