    About MSCS-1D: V2

    One dimensional multijunction solar cell simulator: Version-2 (MSCS-1D: V-2) is developed by Advanced Photovoltaic Lab, Institute of Fuel Research and Development (IFRD), Bangladesh Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (BCSIR). 

    In this new version, we incorporated all features of the first version (MSCS-1D: V1) simulator, but rather than airmass AM 1.5 G global radiation under one sun condition of version-1, this new version incorporates the additional features for performing simulations for Direct Normal Irradiance ( airmass AM 1.5D) condition and space application ( AM 0). This newly developed tool can simulate the performance of concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) multijunction solar cells. In addition, two new materials, Si-Ge of variant bandgap and 0.85 eV bandgap GaAsBi semiconducting material, have incorporated new combinations/modeling of novel multijunction solar cells. Besides, this version is device responsive, which means it can operate in any browser such as Mozilla, Chrome, Safari, and any devices/Gadgets such as Desktop, Laptop, Smartphones, Notebook, etc.

     

    We intend to release this version (MSCS-1D: V2) on December 2022.

    About MSCS-1D

    One dimensional multijunction solar cell simulator: Version-1 (MSCS-1D: V-1) is developed by Advanced Photovoltaic Lab, Bangladesh Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (BCSIR). This work is financially supported by the Ministry of Science and Technology, the People’s Republic of Bangladesh, under the Special Allocation Project. Mr. Abu Kowsar is the principal investigator of this project, Dr. Syed Farid Uddin Farhad and Khaledun Nahar Babi are the co-investigator of this project. Syed Nazmus Sakib, Lecturer, Department of ETE, Daffodil International University, contributed here as an M.S. thesis student of the Institute of Energy, University of Dhaka. The user-friendly interface and the dialogue box of this simulation software were accomplished with Mr. Md. Masum Billah and Sazzatul Yeakin, SoftCare IT.
