This paper analyzes the power characteristics of the PV cell in the case of solar irradiance. And it is also seen that a significant power change is occurred if the level of the series resistance is varied. Finally it is observed that Dinajpur is 9.67% more potential than Khulna and Chittagong in respect of solar irradiance. Also it is found that Dinajpur is 7.47% more potential than Dhaka.
