In this work, software was developed to study the change in the power of solar panels from the angle of incidence of solar light, which is an urgent task in solving the problem of improving the efficiency of the means of generating "green" electricity, in particular solar power plants. For this, the problem of researching the effectiveness of using solar panels in a fixed position and on a mobile mount was analyzed, and the purpose and objectives of the study were formed. The means for the implementation of the software have been selected and their advantages are given for solving this task. Experiments were conducted to study the dependence of the power produced by the solar panel current, depending on the position of the solar panel, the algorithm of the software is given. The obtained results were processed in order to obtain a filtered graphic image presented as a matrix of values. For this purpose, methods of filtering the values of the matrix from misses and smoothing local maxima are compared. Also, interpolation methods were used to process the processed images to a specified size. The final result is given in the form of surface patterns based on matrix values. Further prospects for applying the obtained data to solving scientific and practical problems in the field of solar energy are formulated and areas for further research are given. The results of the work will be used in further studies comparing the effectiveness of using solar panels in a fixed position and on a movable mount.
