Optical Modeling and Simulation of Thin-Film Photovoltaic Devices

Book description

This work provides readers with a thorough guide to performing optical modeling and simulations of thin-film solar cells and PV modules. The authors offer insight on examples of existing optical models, demonstrate the applicability of optical modeling, and present concrete directions and solutions for improving the devices. Many practical examples illustrate the use of simulations with the developed models, helping readers better understand and develop their own models as well as appreciate innovative concepts in light management in thin-film PV devices.
