Paper Abstract

A study of solar cells took place by using Lambert W function based diode model. All calculations were made through computer algebra, having the software Maple a special place. Current vs. Voltage graph corresponding to cells was obtained as a main result, so as diode’s parameters values such as the series, shunt resistances and its constant. Analytical results will be useful for cell manufacturing, either for home or industrial usage. As a future research line, Lambert W function utilization is suggested as a mean for multi-diode systems development.
