Software platform

The PhotoVoltaic Materials and Devices group has a broad range of self-developed modeling software. Ranging from advanced three-dimensional ray tracing tools to analyse scattering and refraction effects validated for a wide range of wafer based and thin-film solar cells, to Advanced Semiconductor Analysis (ASA) that can simulate complete solar cell performances with both optical and electrical properties, to GenPro4 integrated optical modelling which includes refraction, diffraction and thin-film optics by Transfer Matrix method, to the Dutch PV Portal that provides information about entire PV systems, and also includes module-related losses and irradiance dependent performance.
