In this paper, we investigated the heat to electricity conversion efficiency of In1-xGaxAsySb1-y radioisotope thermophotovoltaic (RTPV) converter with x = 0.8 and y = 0.18, taking account of the photons with energy below the cells bandgap using a comprehensive analytical process. This was done with a computer program designed for this reason, which allowed the computation of the cell performance under a variety of specified incident radiation spectra as well as a variety of material parameters.
