With the worldwide energy crisis and therefore the more and more serious environmental issues, renewable energy becomes a future energy trends. PV energy can be used as major alternative energy resources due to its low maintenance cost as well as operational value. Even by considering the atmospherical effects which may hamper the efficiency of a PV cell, still we can draw many advantages from PV source. This paper unveil the case study of a solar PV plant which includes performance evaluation and energy forecasting respective of various losses occurs due to effect of temperature, effect of shading, effect of dust etc. The real time performance result of the plant is compared with a developed MATLAB simulink PV model as well as the result obtained from PVSYST Software. Error percentage is calculated from the obtained results by MAPE(Mean Absolute Percentage Error ) method in order to validate the real time power plant data.
