Homework Help: Solar Energy Help ASAP

Posted by Anonymous on Thursday, October 17, 2013 at 3:48pm.

Below you see a plot of an ideal and a non-ideal JV curve. Based on this plot and assuming an irradiance of 1000W/m2, give approximately the numerical values to the questions bellow:



I. Estimate the ideal Fill Factor (in %):


II. Estimate the non-ideal Fill Factor (in %):


III. Estimate the ideal efficiency (in %):


IV. Estimate the non-ideal efficiency (in %):


V. Which of the following statements is TRUE?

The inverse of the slope of the non-ideal curve at V=Vocis approximately equal to the shunt resistance.

An increase in shunt resistance will result in an decrease in fill factor in reference to the non-ideal case.

A large current in the shunt branch will increase the efficiency of the solar cell

The inverse of the slope of the non-ideal curve at V=Vocis approximately equal to the series resistance.
