Several promising photovoltaic (PV) concepts are supported by transistors. Along with the growth of PV capacity in the urban environment, issues related to partial shading highlight the interest in more shade-tolerant PV systems. An example of technologies improving a PV module’s energy yield under partial shading is the submodule power...

Silicon heterojunction (SHJ) solar cells are one of the most promising PV technologies nowadays due to high photoconversion efficiencies and low manufacturing costs. However, standard front/back-contacted (FBC) solar cells feature a front metal grid that brings shading to the front side of the devices, which limits the conversion efficiency of...
