Today, due to the excessive use of fossil fuels environmental contamination has reached a crisis. Use of renewable and clean energy for a better life and the replacement of to be ending fossil fuels are essential. Photovoltaic has grown in the past two decades and will have many benefits in the future; hence it is necessary to know the influence of each parameter. This paper examined all of the PV parameters and used a simulated model to predict the PV electrical behavior against changing various parameters. At first the ideal and practical models are described then for simulation and by using MATLAB software, different amounts of resistance, sun irradiation, temperature and parameters of the diode, are considered as input and the I-V and P-V are considered as output.
