Abstract

In general solar PV panel works without coating, its efficiency is only about 10-15 %. When specified coating thickness applied on the solar cells, it get slightly increased. Here Magnesium Oxide (MgO) material is used as an anti-reflecting coating agent on silicon solar cell. The optimized coating thickness is 86nm for single crystalline solar PV cell, the wavelength of the light rays is of order 400nm to 800nm. Theoretical model has been developed to determine the reflectivity, transmissivity and refractive index. The coating material increasing transmissivity compare to without coating material.
