Received Date:04 July 2022, Accepted Date:11 September 2022, Published Date:15 October 2022


Objectives: Green energy has led to a lot of development in the energy sector. The use of germanium, silicon PV technology has got major limitations of costing and engineering applications. Organic Solar Cell (OSC) is latest addition in green energy having immense application and economic potential. Method Computer simulation for optical modelling for OPV has been used. Efforts have been made to study the variation of Light intensity on efficiency of organic solar cells. Findings: Worldwide researchers are making efforts to find out ways and means of improving the efficiency of OSC’s. In our case, efforts have been made to achieve optimum efficiency of OSC through optical modelling of organic solar cell Simulation of electrical parameters with the help of optical characteristic is discussed. The effect of. light intensity on the power conversion efficiency of the organic solar cell is also studied. Novelty: This study uses Transfer matrix model (TMM) where accuracy level is high and electric field intensity variation with light intensity is analyzed.

Keywords: Organic Solar Cell; Optical Modelling; Charge Carrier; Light Intensity; Transfer matrix model (TMM)
