Following are the properties of solar cell:
- Open circuit voltage of the solar cell, VOC: For an ideal solar cell, voltage is independent of the illumination intensity. Also, maximum voltage is generated across the terminals of the solar cell when the current, I = 0.
- Short circuit current, ISC: It is the maximum current produced by a solar cell when the terminals of the solar cell are short.
- Maximum power: This is can be obtained from the graph given below:
