PECSIM - Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) simulation software
PhotoElectroChemical SIMulation software PECSIM is a simulation software for the systematic model-based analysis and optimization of dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). The user gains an insight into the complex interaction of the solar cell components of a DSSC that is needed to analyze the energy conversion losses and to develop solar cell optimization strategies.
PECSIM is based on a validated optical and electrical model. The optical model is based on a ray-tracing algorithm that accounts for thin-film optics of antireflection coatings and multiple internal reflections of light within the device. The electrical model accounts for charge carrier injection, transport and recombination. PECSIM's graphical user interface is easy to use.
Benefit from using PECSIM:
- extract diffusion length, injection efficiency, trap density distribution
- predict how a material change (dye, electrolyte, ...) will effect efficiency
- identify samples with the best performance.
