In recent years, hybrid organic-inorganic perovskite solar cells (PSCs) have attracted significant attention as high efficiency, low temperature and low-cost fourth-generation photovoltaic. The power conversion efficiency (PCE) of PSC has been improved significantly, from 3.8% in 2009 to 25.5% in 2019 [1,2]. In this paper, numerical simulation of n-i-p configuration of Glass/FTO/ZnO/MAPbI3/Spiro-OMeTAD/Au perovskite solar cell using a one-dimensional Solar Cell Capacitance Simulator (SCAPS-1D) has been performed. ZnO is an alternative electron transporting layer to TiO2, due to their similar physical properties and excellent carrier transport. The effect of different parameters of the absorber layer and operating temperature on the photovoltaic performance of PSC such as the efficiency, the open-circuit voltage and the short circuit current density is studied. For an optimum thickness of 500 nm and defect density less than 1013 cm-3, we obtained a PCE more than 21%.
