The fundamental power generation unit for photovoltaic is solar PV module. The staging of PV array pivot on environmental conditions like operating temperature, solar heatstroke, array layout. PV line-up get partial shadow effect due to shadow of trees, poles, buildings…etc. Under such conditions the array gets more complicated and it will have spare than one alp. It is very dominant to forecast the attributes of PV array under partial shadow effect to procure maximal power. More distant hotspots, discrepancy losses will occur as well as these lead to certainty and constancy problems. It is still more extortionate and difficult to get control pivot of P-V and I-V under partial shadow effect. Sun Power SPR-305-WHT-U solar panel is taken as reference and the learning cornerstone on output power peak at different solar irradiation levels. This paper also deals with the importance of bypass diodes
