This is very nice work, but I am working on Solarex MSX-60 module. I need Excel file of MSX-60 module badly. Do you have any idea how I can find that ?

@Hossein: It's a reproduction of the Current/Voltage nominal curve from Datasheet.
The 1.665V value is Open Voltage (0.665) + 1V to have a large range because of low temperature effect. It can be less, but 0.665V is not enough.

would you please explain the excel data?
what is the first and second column?
and why you define the voltage in this range?(0 to 1.665)

You've to run SimpleSolarCellAndPanelModel.m, does it solve your problem?
solar.m is just the external calculation function, but you can use it in your own scripts.
