Modern research focuses on the renewable energy sources such as solar energy. This paper presents the modeling and performance of a photovoltaic (PV) cell. A simulation code is built using MATLAB. Results show that the increase of solar radiation and of ideality factor of diode lead to an increase in the output power of PV module, while the increease of cell temperature and of the dark saturation current lead to a decrease of the power. Curves of I-V and P-V dependencies are presented for module having 50 branches connected in parallel, with each branch having 50 cells connected in series. Data for certain Iraqi governorates are taken and applied for proposed module.
