Original Abstract

Thermophotovoltaic (TPV) belongs to the third generation of photovoltaics. This technique works on the principle of an effect of use as much of the radiation spectrum for optimal system operation. Traditional photovoltaic solar cells have an inherent limit on the efficiency at which they can convert sunlight into energy. Conventional solar cells are able to operate in the visible to near-infrared region of the spectrum. This limit, based on the band gap of the material, used and known as the Shockley-Queisser limit is about 33.7 percent for standard solar cells.
