Abstract

High efficiency of solar cells may be obtained at high concentration and narrow-band spectrum system. Difficulties are encountered in determination of the cell efficiency using narrow-band-artificial-light sources at high concentration. A method is proposed in this article for determination of the solar cell efficiency at high concentration and narrow-band spectrum. This method is based on measurement of the solar cell fill factor and the open-circuit voltage at moderate concentration and full spectrum, and based on a calculation procedure.
