Abstract

This research investigated the influence of variation in contacts between cells electrodes and variation of dyes on the efficiency of Dye Sensitized Solar Cells (DSSC). There are three variation of contacts type carried out, we are using the copper paste, carbon paste and silver paste. The dye used was dye chlorophyll from spinach leaf, dye anthocyanin from dragon fruit peel and dye from ruthenium N719. The DSSC module formed from the DSSC cells which combined using the external type Z series connection The characterization used was the UV-Vis spectrophotometry and Keithley I-V metres. The characterization results show that the module building cells have almost the same absorbance level and the module that given silver paste can produce the best efficiency. The efficiency of chlorophyll module that given silver paste is 0.0107%. The efficiency of anthocyanin module that given silver paste is 0.0125%. Ruthenium module with silver paste can produce an efficiency of 0.0354%.
