The Photovoltaic (PV) systems are trending in power sector area due to their eco-friendly nature. This article emphasizes on constructing a PV module, based on individual diode type and simulating it in MATLAB/SIMULINK. The performance of the module for changing conditions of radiation, temperature, series resistance and ideality factor are explored. The influence of these parameters on the Maximum Power output, Efficiency and Fill Factor are studied for Solkar 36W PV module.
