  • Publication number: 20210184062
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is an automotive solar cell roof panel which may be manufactured by adjusting the width and number of cells according to a transparent part and an opaque part in one solar cell module, thus improving output and simplifying a structure. The first and second solar cells include a plurality of transparent-part cells and a plurality of opaque-part cells whose widths and numbers are adjusted according to a current density and a voltage ratio. As such, it is unnecessary to array different kinds of solar cells with different voltage or current ranges, thus maximizing output in one solar cell module, and an additional wiring structure for individually controlling output power, an additional converter, and additional control for voltage matching may not be required, thus simplifying a process.
