Abstract

A photovoltaic (PV) cell is a semiconductor device that is sensitive to the temperature. The solar radiation will convert into electricity through the PV cell and the rest is converted into thermal, which raises the temperature of the PV cell. The increase in temperature on a photovoltaic cell can decrease its efficiency. The simulation of a silicon solar cell was done by PC1D software. It investigates the impact of the temperature on the performance of the solar cell, containing power maximum, open circuit voltage, and short circuit current, by the result of the PC1D. Meanwhile, fill factor and efficiency of the solar cell can be obtained from the simulation results.
