Backside light management of 4-terminal bifacial perovskite/silicon tandem PV modules evaluated under realistic conditions

Abstract : Perovskite/silicon tandem modules have recently attracted growing interest as a potential candidate for new generations of solar modules. Combined with a bifacial configuration it can lead to considerable energy yield improvement in comparison to conventional monofacial tandem solar modules. Optical modeling is crucial to analyze the optical losses of perovskite/silicon solar modules and achieve efficient light management. In this article we study the optical properties of four-terminal bifacial tandem modules, using metal-halide perovskite top solar cell and a conventional industrial crystalline silicon PERC bottom solar cell. We propose a method to analyze bifacial gains, improve back side light management and challenge it under realistic spectral conditions at several locations with various albedos. We show that both optimized designs for the back side show comparable advantages at all locations. These results are a good sign for the standardization of bifacial four-terminal perovskite/silicon modules.
