Abstract

In the present investigation, the recently developed, simple, robust, and powerful metaheuristic symbiotic organism search (SOS) algorithm was used for simulation of J-V characteristics and optimizing the internal parameters of the dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) fabricated using electrospun 1-D mesoporous TiO2 nanofibers as photoanode. The efficiency (η = 5.80%) of the DSSC made up of TiO2 nanofibers as photoanode is found to be ∼ 21.59% higher compared to the efficiency (η = 4.77%) of the DSSC made up of TiO2 nanoparticles as photoanode. The observed high efficiency can be attributed to high dye loading as well as high electron transport in the mesoporous 1-D TiO2 nanofibers. Further, the validity and advantage of SOS algorithm are verified by simulating J-V characteristics of DSSC with Lambert-W function.
