Abstract This work presents the simulation of current-voltage and voltage-watt characteristics of dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC) to determine the effect of thickness and structure of TiO2 electrode on photovoltaic characteristics of solar cells. Simulation was carried out with the help of the developed electrical diffusion model of DSSC. The theoretical study allowed to determine the optimal electrode thickness TiO2, corresponding to the highest point of the maximum power density and efficiency of the cell.
