Abstract

Silvaco work with Atlas was selected for modeling of the advanced solar cells because of the suite of tools and reusable models. Specific models of tunnel junction in the InGaP/GaAs/Ge of multijunction solar cells are prepared and simulated. The exotic materials used in such designs were identified and all their major electrical and optical parameters were researched or derived. Besides that, software code was developed to adjust and calibrate Atlas for the task of simulating solar cells. The scope of this research is focus on the tunnel junction. The major stages of the process are explained and the simulation results are compared to experimental data. Finally the example results are shown throughout the whole process. Through the research, the tunnel junction is simulated with the absent of Power files codes in the source code. The graph have the range of the voltage is from 0 V to 1.4 V and the current range from 0 A to 60 A.
