Simulation of perovskite solar cell temperature under reverse and forward bias conditions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We have developed a model to calculate the temperature of an illuminated perovskite solar cell (PSC) under the forward bias and that of a shaded one under the reverse bias at different ambient conditions. The results show that the dissipated power due to the reverse bias (P R B) should be more than around 6 W to have a higher temperature in the shaded solar cell than that in the illuminated solar cell at the solar irradiance of 1000 W / m 2, and this result is almost ambient temperature and wind velocity independent. It is also found that the generated thermal power due to the nonradiative recombination (P R e c) becomes significant at the open circuit voltage (V o c) condition, leading to illuminated solar cell temperature (T c r) higher than that at the short circuit current (J s c) condition by about 12.7 K, 13.3 K, and 13.9 K at the ambient temperatures of 270 K, 300 K, and 330 K, respectively. In addition, the influence of the thickness of the illuminated solar cell on its temperature at the V o c condition is investigated, which reveals that, by increasing the thickness from 100 nm to 300 nm, the solar cell temperature can increase by 20 K.
