Abstract

[SPICE simulations are introduced by pointing out their benefits and describing the basic simulation principle. A 3-layer 2-dimensional SPICE model of a PV device is designed in three levels: microcell, cell and module level. The purpose and design of each level is explained and simplification guidelines are proposed. As the smallest homogeneous part of the model, different representations of the microcell are presented, and ways to determine the initial parameters are discussed. The simulation procedure is described separately for different measuring techniques, with emphasis on luminescence, current density map transformation to luminescence and iterative procedure for parameter extraction.]
