A computationally efficient simulation method for optimizing front contacts of concentrator multijunction solar cells


In this work, a novel multidiode model is proposed for optimizing the front grid of multijunction solar cells operating under concentration conditions. The model allows for quickly exploring the maximum achievable efficiency under a wide range of operating conditions and design parameters such as the redirecting capability, period and width of the fingers, the light concentration, and the metal and emitter sheet resistivity. The proposed multidiode model shows to be consistent with experimental data and with more complex modeling approaches such as the simulation program with integrated circuit emphasis (SPICE) model.
