Numerical solution of drift-diffusion and electrostatic potential equations for solar cells.
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis gives an introduction to how solar panels work and some of the problems for solar cells that need to be solved. Further, it gives an introduction to some physical equations that describe the electrical behavior inside the panels. We try to solve these equations numerically for different parameter values and with different numerical techniques. An analysis of some of the convergence and stability of each numerical system is given, as well as numerical results with numerical values and plots.
