Solar Energy Help ASAP

posted by .

The current density of an ideal p-n junction under illumination can be described by:

where Jph is the photo-current density, J0 the saturation-current density, q the elementary charge, V the voltage, k the Boltzmann's constant, and T the temperature.

A crystalline silicon solar cell generates a photo-current density of Jph=40mA/cm2 at T=300K. The saturation-current density is J0=1.95∗10−10mA/cm2.

Assuming that the solar cell behaves as an ideal p-n junction, calculate the open-circuit voltage Voc (in V).

    If it is open circuit, then J(v)=0

    Jph=Jo(e^(qV/T) )
    Take the ln of each side

    ln (Jph/Jo)=qV/T

    Voc=T/q *ln(Jph/Jo )
