Effects of intensity of magnetic field generated by neodymium permanent magnet sheets on electrical characteristics of monocrystalline silicon solar cell

Piyapat Panmuang, C. Photong


In this research, the effects of magnetic field intensity on electrical characteristics of a monocrystalline silicon solar cell were investigated. The experimental test-rig under Standard Test Condition was set up and tested to observe the respective effects. The electrical characteristics in terms of current-voltage-power curves, critical solar cell parameters and fill factor were then examined and analyzed. The outcome of this study demonstrates that the external magnetic field has a positive impact on electrical parameters, the experimental results showed that applying magnetic intensity of 60-260mT significantly affected the electrical characteristics of the cell; i.e., maximized cell current, voltage and power by 12.20, 7.12 and 23.60%, respectively. In addition, this positive impact consequencely happened on the i-v and p-v electrical characteristics curves of the solar cell; reflected by 3.69% increasing in the fill factor.
