The demands for electrical power are increasing. PV is one of the applications to produce electrical power, especially in areas have poor natural resource. In this study, an experimental investigation involves research on the optimum tilt angle for the power output and efficiency. The factors affecting the power output and efficiency of solar cell general are the ambient temperatures, tilt angle and natural particles polluting deposition outside the PV modules. In this study, five samples of solar cells are formed. The experiments were carried out in Kirkuk climate, Iraq, 2019. The experimental results showed that the best average power output of the (φ=35o) at a rate of (45.4 W). The increment in the power output of (φ=35o) is (81.5%) when compared with (φ=0o).
