PVPanelSim is a general panel simulation framework that was originally developed for a-Si solar cells. The subcells are connected in series and parallel to simulate the overall response — and it can do a wide variety of problems including the effect of shunt and series resistances.
In principle, a-Si/uc-Si can be simulated, so long the I-V characteristics of the cell is is parameterized in terms the a-Si models. In other words, the diode parameter, the voltage dependent recombination, etc. should be adjusted so that the response of the double-heterojunction cell mimics that of an effective a-Si solar cell (by the way, the a-Si model will be released very soon at the NEEDS website https://nanohub.org/groups/needs). Once this is done, PVPanelSim will do the rest.
I suggest that you start by working with a-Si model, work out a few examples. Once this is done, you will find implementing the a-Si/uc-Si relatively easy.
