Cursusdoelen
After completion of this course, students
(i) Have acquired knowledge of irradiance, photovoltaic (PV) solar energy systems and PV solar cells at a basic level
(ii) Are able to assess the solar resource in different parts of the world and design simple solar powered system using openly available internet sources.
(iii) Master the physics and materials science of PV solar cells to a level which allows understanding and working with state-of-the-art PV literature.(iii) Are able to apply the knowledge acquired in the evaluation of new developments in research of solar systems and PV cells.

 
Inhoud
Lecture 1: Solar irradiance, solar resource in different parts of the world, online resources for solar irradiance, direct- and diffuse light, spectral and angle dependent components, albedo, introduction to LCOE
Lecture 2: PV systems
Lecture 3: Semiconductor light interaction
Lecture 4: Wafer based PV; silicon and III-V solar cells
Lecture 5: Silicon heterojunction and thin film PV; CIGS, CdTe, Perovskite
Lecture 6: Light management in solar cells; front contacts, spectrum splitting, concentration, light trapping, albedo light…

Organization
The course consists of 8 lectures of 4 hours in combination with several assignments. The final lecture (week 8) will be a presentation of the group projects and the lecture in the week before (week 7) will be a round table discussion for the group projects. The group project will be graded based on the presentation and a written report The course will be completed with a written examination. The final mark is based on 20% group project grade and 80% final written examination.
