A new type of photovoltaic system with higher generation power density has been studied in detail. The feature of the proposed system is a V-shaped structure with two polycrystalline solar cells. Compared to solar cells in a conventional approach, the V-shaped structure enhances external quantum efficiency and leads to an increase of 24% in power conversion efficiency.
