Photovoltaic (PV) solar energy has become very important in power systems. PV systems became an affirmative part in power grids. For engineers; it is very important to design and simulate such systems that serve the solar plants. The PV modules are modeled by the use of actual manufacturers' data listed in the lookup table model. The lookup table is performed by the use of MATLAB/Simulink toolbox based. Moreover; Artificial Neural Network (ANN) numerical technique is used to simulate and evaluate the designed modules. The implemented work may help the designer and/or investor in order to elect a specified PV module according to the demanded power load thence; designing the PV fields for many of power applications. The results show a very good matching with the actual commercial data points of the PV systems.
