Experimental results obtained from J–V curve analysis of a solar cell under concentration, with uniform, Gaussian and anti-Gaussian temperature profiles, have been analysed.

Compared with a cell subjected to uniform temperature, the Gaussian temperature profile leads to a maximum power output 1.52% higher and the anti-Gaussian 3.31% lower.

It has been demonstrated that for a determined illumination profile, it is possible to tailor the temperature pattern curve to maximise the cell Voc.
