In this study, an analysis of the sunlight concentration dependence of the active layer resistance in solar cells is presented. The analysis is essentially based on well-known classical models and has been worked out for the particular case of n** plus /p solar cells. This study leads to a relation between the excess carrier density and series resistance change. Interpretations based on our results explain the experimental observations of Wolf and Rauschenbach (1963) and the theoretical investigation of Bobbio et al. (1977).
