Abstract: Sun powered vitality has been utilized by human race since long times utilizing a heaps of innovations. A solar cell is an electrical device that converts the energy of light directly into electricity by the photovoltaic effect. For PV cells, a more slender semiconductor sheet is uniquely made to structure an electric field, positive extremity on one side and negative on other. At the point when photons strike a sun powered cell, electrons are accumulated detached from iotas the semiconductor material. In the event that current conduits are appended to the both the sides, structuring a current exchanging circuit, the electrons move to manifestation of a current i.e., power for fulfilling different power needs. The overall performance of solar cell varies with varying Irradiance and Temperature.With the change in the time of the day the power received from the Sun by the PV panel changes. This paper gives an idea about how the solar cell performance changes with the change in above mentioned factors and compares the solar radiation of two regions Faridabad and Chennai. The results are simulated in MATLAB.
