Abstract
We present a fast and simple 1D simulation tool to predict solar cell performance as a function of the initial iron content and distribution in the as-grown silicon wafer, the time-temperature profiles applied during the fabrication process, and several parameters related to cell architecture. The applied model consists of three parts that are validated by comparison to experimental results from literature. Assuming a time-temperature profile of a standard solar cell fabrication process, we calculate the redistribution of iron and the evolution of minority carrier lifetime for different as-grown Fe distributions. The solar cell performance as a function of the total iron concentration and the final lifetime distribution is also simulated and compared to experimental results for multicrystalline Si.
