Both accuracy and low computational cost are required to predict the excitation energies of real molecular complexes in organic photovoltaic cells. The time-dependent density functional theory (DFT) method is one of the promising approaches for this purpose, though its reliability strongly depends on the used xc-functional. In this article, the impact of the nonempirically tuning scheme is discussed for several LC(CAM)-DFT functionals. Tuned LC(CAM)-DFT methods are found to better reproduce the excitation energies of pentance/C60 model complex than conventional LC-DFT methods.
