Model of a solar cell and solar module is built in the LabVIEW software. Solar cell model is in single diode model and it is solved by familiar Newton Raphson method. IV characteristics and PV characteristics are simulated in LabVIEW and it verified at different temperature and irradiance conditions. Maximum power point tracking is incorporated in the simulation of PV module and the Maximum power point, voltage and current at this maximum power point were simulated at standard conditions and verified the result. The simulation system used for the analysis of solar photovoltaic module at different temperature value, solar irradiation value, series resistance Rs and shunt resistance Rsh . Behavior of the solar module in different diode ideality factor also analyzed. This model can be used for analysis of PV characteristics and for simulation with Maximum Power Point Tracking Algorithm(MPPT) algorithms.
