  • Laboratory - and simulation practice solar energy

    LABORATORY - AND SIMULATION PRACTICE SOLAR ENERGY

    The course in the form of a one-week block course during the semester break introduces the basics of photovoltaics. By means of experiments in the laboratory, students learn about modern measurement technology used in photovoltaic research. Based on the measurement data obtained, solar cells are simulated in the second part of the course as part of a computer exercise. The laboratory experiments take place at the Institute for Solar Energy Research Hameln (ISFH), the computer exercise in the PC pool of the Solar Energy Department at the Institute for Solid State Physics.

    Brief information:

    • Content of the event: Experimental determination of important parameters of solar cells in the laboratory and subsequent simulation and optimization of solar cells on the computer based on the measured data
    • Date: 28.09 - 02.10.2020 (full day)
    • Preliminary discussion (participation obligatory) Institute of Solid State Physics in Appelstr. 2, date will be announced in Stud.IP
    • Locations: Institute for Solid State Physics (Appelstr. 2, 30167 Hannover) and Institute for Solar Energy Research Hameln (Am Ohrberg 1, 31860 Emmerthal)
    • ECTS: 4
    • Modules: Modern aspects of physics, Selected topics of modern physics, Selected topics of nanoelectronics
    • Registration via Stud.IP requested
    • Restriction on participation: 20 persons. The places of the event will be allocated during the preliminary discussion among the present persons according to the order of registration in Stud.IP

    PROCEDURE OF THE WORKSHOP

    You will prepare for the course in the form of self-study. You will be provided with materials for this purpose during the preliminary discussion. The actual course takes place from 28.09.-02.10.2020 all day (8.30 am to 5 pm). We will start with the laboratory experiments. Based on the measurement data obtained, solar cells will then be simulated and optimised on the computer. A short scientific lecture in which you present your results concludes the course.
