How to improve the performance of dye-sensitized solar cell modules by light collection

Publication year: 2011 Source: Solar Energy Materials and Solar Cells, Available online 15 December 2011 Yi-Duo Zhang, Xiao-Ming Huang, Dong-Mei Li, Yan-Hong Luo, Qing-Bo Meng Low cost reflectors were applied to dye-sensitized solar cell modules to reduce the energy losses caused by the inactive areas occupied by sealing materials and metal fingers, and significant improvement of overall efficiency was achieved. An improved model was used to simulate the modules, and the optimized geometry parameters of the modules were obtained. After applying the reflectors, wider silver fingers, and smaller cells were recommended for large area modules, and the influence of the width of sealing material was reduced
