The ¶Research has for objective to increase the performances of the thin film solar cells. ¶Many scientific publications were interested by the development of the thin films which make the cell. ¶Others based their research on the technology of the cell and the experimental elaboration conditions.¶ ¶In this paper we are interested by the performances of the cell during its utilization period. ¶We study the influence of the use temperature on the macroscopic electric parameters of the solar
