Quokka3, a software to simulate (silicon) solar cells in 3D faster and more complete than ever.
A commercial-quality rebuilt and enhancements of the popular free Quokka 2
Quokka3 - Key features
- Solves up to full-size cells in 3D
- Simulates c-Si based tandem cells
- Well suited for bifacial cells
- Accounts for edge recombination
- Fastest 3D simulator available due to skin concept
- Flexible in physical detail vs speed and simplicity
- JV-curve, quantum efficiency, suns-Voc curve, ...
- Luminescence modelling for EL / PL simulation

Fraunhofer ISE is the main scientific partner for testing and applying new functionalities.
The predecessor of Quokka3 was developed during Andreas' employment at The Australian National University. A strong scientific partnership is maintained, including priority software access.
PV Lighthouse hosts the free predecessor of Quokka3, and from its very early days continued to scientifically collaborate on the improvement of relevant models.
