Paper Title:
Study on the Output Characteristics of Organic Photovoltaic Cells
  Abstract

Based on the analysis of the equivalent circuit model of organic photovoltaic (OPV) cells, the explicit expression of current, short-circuit current and open-circuit voltage was obtained by means of W-function, and the effects of internal resistances and diode quality factor on the output characteristics of OPV cells were studied. The results demonstrate that the series resistance can effect short-circuit current but not open-circuit voltage, and the shunt resistance and diode quality factor can influence open-circuit voltage but short-circuit current unchanged. The decrease in series resistance and the increase in shunt resistance and diode quality factor can enhance the fill factor and energy conversion efficiency of OPV cells. This conclusion is essential in preparing OPV cells and improving device performance.
