Series resistance (Rs) in solar cells is distributed and varies significantly with operating conditions. This work presents a review of common Rs measurement methods with specific attention given to the multi-light method, which gives accurate measurement of Rs-light and Rs-dark as a function of operating current and permits extraction of pseudo-J-V curve and pseudo-parameters. A modified version of a two-diode model, which includes Rs(J), is presented, which allows much better fit to experimental J-V curve.
