In this presentation a new method for developing a realistic model of any type of solar cell is presented. Taking into account the high cost of research and experimentation involved with the development of advanced cells, we present here this novel methodology. In our opinion, the introduction of this modeling technique to the Photovoltaic community will prove to be of great importance in aiding the design and optimization of advanced Perovskite solar cells.  Previously, models of single Si, GaAs, CIGS, as well as Multi-junction solar cells of other materials were developed and fully simulated by the researcher at the Naval Postgraduate School[1&2]. The major stages of the process will be presented. Simulation results are compared to published experimental data to demonstrate the accurate results of this technique[3&4]. The flexibility of the proposed methodology will be illustrated, and example results are shown throughout the whole process with application for the development of a hybrid Perovskite solar cell with improved performance will be presented. Optimization procedure performed on the physical model utilizing the ATLAS device simulator by Silvaco international [5&6] will also be demonstrated.
