BUILT DYE-SENSITIZED SOLAR CELLS- A CONFIRMATORY TEST OF A MATHEMATICAL MODEL

Abstract


In their work, Efurumibe, et al (2012) developed a mathematical model of electron transport through the anode of a standard dye-sensitized solar cell. By analysis of the model, it was observed that the rate of electron trapping by the anode of the dye-sensitized solar cell decreases as the anode side increases. Here in this work, three different dye-sensitized solar cells (of different anode sizes) were built. When the cells were tested, it was observed that the cells with higher anode sizes gave increased current and voltage values. This confirmed the mathematical model as true.
