Full day simulations of anti-reflection coatings for flat plate silicon photovoltaics

Buie, D; McCann, Michelle; Weber, Klaus; Dey, C J


This paper presents an investigation into the use of thin films of silicon oxide and silicon nitride as anti-reflection coatings to minimise the reflection losses of incident solar insolation on silicon photovoltaic cells. The total theoretical reflectance under two insolation cases is investigated. Firstly, with AM 1.5 direct beam radiation at normal incidence, as is usually simulated, and secondly, with the direct beam simulated over a full day. Ensuring that a minimum silicon oxide layer of...[Show more]
