It is significant to improve the photoelectric parameters of thin-film silicon-based solar cells. There are some methods to enhance the optical and electrical properties of thin-film silicon-based solar cells. One of them is to insert various metal nanoparticles into a thin-film solar cell. Nanoparticles have an effect on the photoelectric parameters, also on their temperature coefficients. In this work, the effect of Au, Ag, Pt, Ti, Co, Al, Cu nanoparticles on the temperature coefficient of the photoelectric parameters of a thin film silicon-based solar cell was studied. The calculations were performed for temperatures ranging from 250 to 350 K. In this research, it was found that the open-circuit voltage of a solar cell with Pt and Ti nanoparticles changes by 0.4 % when the temperature changes by 1 K. Besides, it was revealed that the short-circuit current of a solar cell with Ag nanoparticles has the greatest effect on the temperature coefficient, that is 6.3 times.
