In this paper, we have proposed dye-sensitized hybrid solar cell based on TiO2 nanoparticles as a medium for electron transport and conjugated polymers as hole-conductor, where dye molecules absorb solar radiation and create electron-hole pairs. This solar cell can be a better alternative to conventional electrolyte based dye-sensitized solar cells, because of enhanced characteristics of performance. We have simulated it numerically, to study essential characteristics of the structure such as electron, hole and their current densities and internal electric field in two operating conditions of open-circuit and short-circuit cases. Then current-voltage characteristic diagram has been plotted and energy conversion: efficiency calculated.
