This set of slides decribes the basic principles of operation of various generations on solar cells with emphasis to single crystalline solar cells. Next, semiconductor equations that describe the operation of a solar cell under simplified conditions is given. Finally, modeling of single junction solar cells is described. Modeling of solar cells with Silvaco simulation software is also outlined.
