Abstract

Investigation shows that the application of commercialised single-crystalline silicon solar cells on a low power-magnifying thin plastic concentrator can improve the output of the solar cells. The output current of the solar cells can be maximised from 60.1mA up to 101.6mA. In addition, an inexpensive and simple concentrator can even lift the output current of the commercialised single-crystalline silicon solar cell with flaws from 18.5 up to 73.1mA which is 1.2 times the output current of the regular solar cells that is only 60mA. The reuse of the resources can not only save cost, but also protect the environment. This research also investigated the output current and IV property of the cells.
