Annotation The aim of this work is to investigate the effect of anti-reflection coating to improve the performance of silicon solar cell. The reflectance for different anti-reflection coating materials (SLARC and DLARC) were calculated numerically as well as on online source of PV Education. The parameters of such materials are used in PC1D simulator to study the performance of solar cells. It was found that DLARC has considerable effect on the performance of solar cell as compare to SLARC. Further, it was observed that the photovoltaic efficiency and short circuit current is significantly high for SiO2/TiO2 DLARC.
