t The main objective of this paper is to find out the various electrical characteristics of solar cell. The main characteristics of solar cell are I-V and P-V characteristics, these two characteristics we are going to find by employing Matlab/Simulink. The exact curve of I-V and P-V are quite difficult to get manually; however, it is possible through the Matlab/Simulink. There are many approaches to find out the electrical characteristics of solar cell in Matlab/Simulink. In that we followed one circuit which is designed by us, shown and discussed below and the required curves are plotted with the help of Matlab/Simulink.
