|Abstract: ||Due to the electrical mismatch between the individual
cells, the actual efficiency of a PV module is always lower
than the sum of the cells under normal measurement
conditions. The effect of this electrical mismatch is
simulated for single junction amorphous silicon PV
modules as well as micromorph thin film PV modules.
This paper reports on the design of the realistic parameter
distribution for the I-V simulation. It shows that due to the
current mismatch in a double junction solar cell, these
devices seem to be more significantly affected by similar
variation in parameters, which would indicate that tighter
production control is necessary but also that it will be more
involved to measure these devices with sufficient accuracy.
It is shown that device mismatch actually results in a lower
fill factor, which is slightly different to what is seen for
